The sweeping forests of the Mad River Valley in the Green Mountains are a world-renowned destination to see Vermont fall foliage—and one of the best ways to take in these fiery autumnal hues is on foot through the many picturesque hiking trails in our area. While it’s impossible to pinpoint the perfect time for visiting during the fall season, the peak of Vermont fall foliage typically occurs between mid-September and mid-October. You can monitor the progress of the fall colors throughout the season by using Vermont’s Fall Foliage Tracker.
If you’re planning a trip to see Vermont fall foliage, there are some guidelines to follow. For the best chances of catching the colors, head to northern Vermont or higher elevations earlier in the season when the weather is cooler. The higher you go, the more stunning your view of the colorful valleys below will be. Additionally, marshy areas around the water offer great early-season fall colors. Autumn is an exceptionally popular time of year to visit us, though, so you should make your plans as early as possible.
