This year’s Vermont fall foliage season is shaping up to be one of the best we’ve seen in years. Even though Columbus Day Weekend has come and gone, there is still plenty of great color to see around the state from Burlington to Bolton to Bennington. (You can find updated foliage reports on the Vermont Tourism website, VermontVacation.com.)
I started leaf-peeping back in mid-September, when the colors were just starting to change in the upper reaches of the Northeast Kingdom. I traveled from Island Pond to Sandgate over the past few weeks, and visited about 20 towns in eight counties. It’s been a busy month!
Highlights from an Incredible Vermont Fall Foliage Season
For me, some of the high points of the season included visits to Hapgood Pond in Peru, Grout Pond in Stratton, Jobs Pond in Westmore, Sandgate Road in Bennington County, the Old Stone House Museum in Brownington, Lincoln Gap, and East Warren Road in the Mad River Valley.
What’s next? I’ll be spending some time in Addison County and Chittenden County during the rest of October, soaking up the rest of this amazing season.
