Legendary Fall Foliage

Vermont's Fall Views Are Unforgettable

Vermont's fall foliage is world-renowned for its beauty and richness of color. Our state is among the most heavily forested in the U.S., and maple trees make up significant pieces of our woods, so when their leaves begin to turn from green to red, orange and yellow, the landscapes become breathtaking works of art. Planning a fall foliage trip to Vermont? You'll be glad you did. Check out our foliage season tips as you plan so once you get here, you can focus on the scenery. Advance reservations are strongly recommended during the foliage season, especially for the busy weekends from late September through mid-October.
