See Vermont Fall Foliage in These 15 Beautiful Places

Condé Nast Traveler Logo By Cassie Shortsleeve of Condé Nast Traveler | Slide 1 of 16: Each year, autumn creeps in at Vermont’s northern border, painting the state in shades of reds, oranges, and yellows. Vermont's fall foliage beckons travelers from across the globe, and rightfully so: Three-quarters of the state are covered in forest, and it has the highest concentration of maple trees in the country (these are the ones that erupt in color).
But where—and when—should you go? Up in the northern reaches of the state, leaves usually begin to turn the second and third weeks of September. (Check this interactive fall foliage map for this year's trends. The Vermont Department of Tourism’s foliage tracker also details peak foliage times in different areas of the state.) But a trip anywhere across state lines from mid-September through October practically guarantees awe, as does entry to one of the many fall festivals across the state. Here's where to go on your fall trip to Vermont.
