Re: CT to Quebec with a stop in VT- Best foliage route?

Colors on route US 5 may not be good from Brattleboro north to White River Jct. Keep driving up I-91 until the colors look good and get off onto US 5. US 5 from exit 12 in Norwich, VT to St. Johnsbury is a nice ride. US 5 from St. Johnsbury to Lyndonville is not that great a ride. Take I-91 just sou...

Re: Seeking route suggestions from Portsmouth, NH to Stowe, VT on 10/8

Rt 112(Kancamagus Hwy) goes from route 302 in Conway, NH west to route 302 in Bath, NH. If you want to do the whole road, the quickest way to the road is to take I-95 north to Portland, Maine and take route 302 west to Conway, NH. This will be an all day trip ! If you want a shorter drive, then use ...

Re: Upstate NY to Franconia NH with stop in vt

Route 15 from Morrisville, VT east to US 2 in West Danville should have better color at that time.
Darling Hill Road is a great ride. You should also do route 5A out of West Burke up to Lake Willoughby. It's worth the trip.

Re: Upstate NY to Franconia NH with stop in vt

Best color in the Bennington area will be in the mountains. Route 100 from route 9 in Wilmington north to Stowe is your best bet. There are 2 main routes to get to the East Burke area from route 100. The first is route US 2 in Waterbury. When you get to US 2 in Waterbury, turn right and drive US 2 e...

Re: Vermont (Stowe) and NH (White Mt and Suger hill) 5th Oct OR 13th Oct?

No, don't change your date. I live near Stowe and the colors are starting now. Foliage season is running normal. When someone mentions Sugar Hill, NH I start dreaming about Polly's Pancake Parlor. :D

Re: CT to Quebec with a stop in VT- Best foliage route?

It looks like you are heading to Quebec City. I'm assuming you are driving I-91 to Canada. That goes through Northeast VT which should have great foliage at that time. But lodging is scarce up there, and with foliage season in full mode, it could be hard to find a room. St. Johnsbury and Newport are...

Re: Early Signs of Fall..........

I've been seeing changes in the foliage the last few days. The bright green leaves of summer are looking dull and the stressed trees are turning color. These trees are damaged, diseased or in bad soil and always turn early. What color I'm seeing looks good. We are in a moderate drought up here in no...

Re: Need help: VT/NH trip OCT 14 to 19

After looking at the photos in this forum, I think Peacham will still be nice. But I think Woodstock, Vermont and south of there would be better. The Woodstock, New Hampshire area may be alright in the lowlands, but the highlands may be gone by. I would work south of there. The leaves are hanging on...

Re: Green Mountains and Peacham areas - October 15-18

This has been a weird foliage season so it's hard to predict how the foliage will be. The foliage should still be good in Peacham early in your vacation so do that first. After that I would wander around from Killington and south of there. Woodstock should be okay also. The key to the foliage in the...

Re: Help Planning 1st time VT visit + leaf lover!

Foliage in the Stowe area may not be good at that time. Burlington is in the Champlain Valley, which has a warmer climate than the rest of the State. Foliage turns later. You should have decent foliage down the west side of the State. I prefer doing route 116 from South Burlington to East Middlebury...

Re: Rain Shall Not Deter The Hard Core Leaf Peeper!

Well, you've had a weird foliage vacation this year. When we went out Wednesday the color was lifeless and by Friday the colors were eye popping. Mom and I are still debating about a foliage ride for today. I can see a patch of blue sky on the western horizon and I'm sipping my 3rd cup of coffee, so...

From there we took a side road to Cabot. We took the Danville Hill Road from Cabot to route US 2 and then the Mack Mountain...

Re: From Grafton to St. Johnsbury (NEK)

We are not having a good foliage year this year. I was up in the Northeast Kingdom yesterday with CTYankee and it was not good. There is a lot of color, but it was dull and lifeless. The conditions seem to be state wide. I would do scenic drives in that area. Route 35 to Chester and route 103 from t...
