State foliage report for September 21st 2016

Postby admin » Wed Sep 21, 2016 3:27 pm

SEPTEMBER 21, 2016

With plenty of warm weather and sunshine, Vermont’s peaks and valleys are still showing an abundance of green foliage. Hints of fall color are topping the mountains, especially in the Northeast Kingdom, northern Green Mountains, and the highest elevations of Southern Vermont, according to Vermont Forests, Parks and Recreation Commissioner Michael Snyder.

In southern areas, state foresters are reporting hints of early color development. Although the mountains are still lush and green, there are hints of yellow and red that will become brighter every day through Vermont’s foliage season.

The hillsides are not yet in full swing, but the cooler nights that are predicted will begin to spur color change in the coming week.

Best Bets (North to South):
- Northeast Kingdom Byway from St. Johnsbury to Newport and Jay.
- Route 120 touring along the north and west of Lake Carmi State Park.
- Route 105 from Enosburg Falls to Richford, then east to Island Pond.
- Routes 14, 15, 16, and 114 through the Northeast Kingdom.
- Route 302 through Orange, Groton & Ryegate.
- The Gap Roads: Routes 17, 125 and 73 west from Route 100.
- Route 4 from West Bridgewater, heading west to Killington over Sherburne Pass to Mendon.
- Route 103 from Ludlow through Mount Holly to Route 7.
- Route 9 from Woodford to Marlboro.
