Leaf Peeping Vermont's Fall Colors

Vermont can be called the nation’s unofficial capital for fall foliage. Nothing can replace the scenic beauty of Vermont, especially in the fall months. If you’re a leaf peeper, then you are probably planning your next visit to Vermont. To see the leaves change their color from bright green to a warm red, we have chosen the 4 best places to visit in Vermont in the fall.


To view the best fall color in the world, Stowe is the place. It is located in the North-central region. The most amazing red, yellow, and orange foliage can be seen from the last weeks of September until the first few weeks of October. This foliage forms a great contrast against the Mount Mansfield— Vermont’s highest peak— that towers the historic and vibrant community of Stowe. With the best places to dine and shop at and numerous outdoor activities, this is the place to visit for leaf-peepers, adventurers, and many others.


This village is located in the heart of the Green mountains. This picturesque village has unforgettable scenery, mouth-watering places to eat at, and covered bridges. The best part about the Green Mountains? On its Eastern edge, lies the Route 100! This byway winds through the Green mountains (north to south). This route is considered by the Yankees Magazine as the “Best Fall Foliage Viewing in New England”.

Craftsbury Common

This picture-perfect town is a pastoral farmland that is decorated with white picket fences. It is located in the Northeast Kingdom. To have the best experience and the most scenic drive, drive from Stowe Village to Craftsbury Common. The drive is about 100 miles, and it will take about 2 hours 45 minutes. Not only will it give you a chance to see the most breath-taking foliage, but it will also allow you to explore the local landscape. So start packing!

Elmore State Park

This place, also known as the Beauty Spot of Vermont, is the perfect picnic location to see the colors change. With more than 700 acres of land, countless trees, a beach, and open grassy spaces (open through October 9), this place is a one-of-a-kind place to view the surrounding foliage.

The park also offers camping, boating, and hiking on the Elmore Mountain. So pack your bags and your beanie, grab a latte, and venture into the park for some Vermont leaf peeping.
