NW CT, Berkshires, Corinth, VT Region

Oct. 5-8, We drove from NW CT through the Berkshires, up I-91 to Corinth, VT. NW CT and the Berkshires were hit hard with the fungus leaf spot and many sugar maple leaves turned brown early and fell off the trees. Not many bright colors this year, mostly shades of yellow, and brown. As far as Vermon...

Hi, we will be driving from NW CT, going North on Route 7 to I-90 and then North on I-91 to exit 16, East Corinth to East Orange Village and to our Corinth place up that gravel road (Maplewood Road) above the village/church, later this week. I will report back when we return. The weather forecast is...

Re: PLEASE HELP!! October 16-20

Many trees in NW CT have brown leaf spot and the leaves are just turning brown and falling off. We usually have peak color around Oct. 14th, but I think this year it will be rather subdued. We drove North on 91 (exit 16) to our Corinth, VT place this past week (Sept. 21-27), also lots of dull yellow...

Re: en route to Vermont

Stockbridge (Red Lion Inn)is along Route 7, not Sturbridge which is located East of Springfield. Mt. Washington (Mt. Washington Road, great views and Mount Everett) and Bash Bish Falls are also very pretty and worth the side trip to get off the main route (Route 7). South Egremont along Route 23 is ...

Re: Visting over Halloween weekend

I live in NW CT and we are peak now. Late October is stick season even in NW CT. Yet, with the few leaves still hanging on in VT and a fresh coating of snow, it is a special magical time of year. We have a place in Corinth, VT at elevation of 1600 ft. and Oct. 9th was just sliding past peak.

Leaf Color Update

I was in Corinth, VT (between Montpelier and Bradford) Friday, Sat. and Sunday (Oct. 10-13). The colors were spectacular! This region has a great deal of Sugar Maples, with some dark green spruce, white birch, beech and a few aspens. The mix and blend of the brilliant reds, oranges and golds with th...

Re: Starting to get worried

My husband and I will also arrive in southern Orange County, VT late Thursday evening on the 10th. We too will awake to a view overlooking a 30 acre meadow with a crystal clear pond framed by sugar maple trees. Only difference is that we will be sleeping in sleeping bags, in tent inside our old Verm...

Re: pwt54 ... need ur advice ...

Central Vermont has a great deal of sugar maples which display the most brilliant colors. Add beech, white birch and the dark green of the spruce in the deep cold valleys to the mix and the colors are spectacular. As you go further North, the forest is a bit more "northern forest" which means more e...

Re: Free Fall Foliage

Sure, if you want to post your address I think some of us New Englanders will be happy to send some pretty leaves. I would enjoy kicking them around searching for the most beautiful ones to send :-)

Oct. 26&27 Report

Hi, spent Fri. and Sat. in North Central, VT. Most of the leaves are down, but in areas with larch and birch, the yellows are brillant. It was nice to be able to see further into the forest and there are more views now. The weather was invigorating. At times we would sit in the field in the warm sun...

Re: Peak during Oct 7-10?

We find that the color can vary a great deal from area to area. Elevation does typically play an important role, but there are peculiarities. We were in Corinth (North Central VT), elevations 1600 to 2000 feet, Oct. 12 & 13. It was warm and sunny and the color spectacular. Mostly sugar maples in tha...

Re: this weekend in Southern Vermont

I live in NW CT. Route 7 along the Housatonic River is gorgeous right now. Stop in West Cornwall, lovely village and covered bridge. Salisbury, CT and Route 41 North is a nice route. For adventure, go up the gravel Mt. Riga Road out of Salisbury to South Edgarmont, MA (turns to pavement near Mt. Eve...

Foliage Report Oct. 12 & 13

We just returned from Corinth, VT (between Montpelier and Braford, (Route 91, Exit 16). The colors were spectacular, brilliant reds and golds. They are starting to come down now and after this weekend some rain and wind will bring lots down. We found it to be a wonderful time because there was a pre...

Re: a confession : "too much is not enough". and hence, ad

Hi Hari, now that you are an experienced "leafer", lets get down to serious business :-) Get a Vermont Atlas & Gazetteer. Follow small roads. The gravel roads in VT are typically in very good condition (Class 3). Grafton Village is a charming place to walk around. There are walking paths and mountai...
