Fall In Vermont

With forests covering three-quarters of our state, and the highest percentage of vibrant maple trees in the country, Vermont explodes with colors once the leaves start to turn. Whether you are touring the state on a scenic byway, or enjoying a crisp autumn hike outdoors, almost everywhere you look in Vermont during the fall months is alive with bursting reds, oranges and yellows.

Adding to the natural beauty of autumn in Vermont are a variety of festivals, events and activities that help celebrate the season. Harvesting fruits and vegetables, visiting farms, pumpkin patches, hay rides and corn mazes are among the host of outdoor things to do that make this such a special time of year.
