Also, just wondering if anyone can suggest some fun things to do. We're definitely eating dinner at Hemmingway's and will visit Quechee Gorge and hopefully have dinner at Simon Pearce Restaurant. We're going back to Sugarbush Farm. Anything we're missing? It's been a few years since we've been. Also, should we drive from NYC through Al bany to Troy into Vermont or is there a more senic way where we'll see more color.
Thanks in advance!!!
Route 4 east of Killngton to Bridgewater has some very nice color with bright reds/oranges- traveling west (back to Killgton today) was very nice in the late afternoon.
Route 100A and 100 SOUTH of Killington offer some nice color, especially along the lakes. There is some really great color in the 100A/route 4 region and then along the lakes between route 4 and Ludlow.
Route 103 between Chester and Ludlow had some nice color as did route 11 between (near Bromley Mountain).
The areas near Manchester are still turning.
Ludlow and Okemo also have some very decent color.

Now you have a choice that depends on how much time you have. SHORT ROUTE; take route 28 to route 8 in Weavertown and turn left. Take route 8 southwesterly to route 12 south into Utica and I-90 west to Buffalo. Medium route. Take route 28 to route 30 south at Indian Lake.
