State of Vermont Foliage Report for October 15th, 2014


Vermont’s remaining foliage display is steadily revealing itself in the state’s southern valleys and the Champlain Valley region. While Vermont’s northern and higher elevations are past peak, hikers and leaf-peepers should keep in mind that the views from the trails will be opening and that the understory foliage continues to be bright and beautiful.
Forest, Parks and Recreation Commissioner Michael Snyder reports, “While much of Vermont’s foliage color has passed peak, there are still great viewing opportunities, especially in the south and in much of the Champlain Valley and there are scattered, isolated areas of excellent color in the more sheltered pockets of mountain valleys. Also, community and urban trees often offer wonderful late color in stately old sugar maples that mark town greens and village streets. And remember, even after the leaves fall, there’s another few weeks of beautiful color on the ground to enhance those late fall forest hikes and mountain bike rides.”
