Foliage in Southern Vermont
As summer begins winding down and kids go back to school the first of the leaves begin changing color in Southern Vermont meaning only one thing – fall foliage is right around the corner! The Deerfield Valley boasts magnificent scenery all year long and those views are only accentuated further with the bright autumn colors.
Stay up to date with the current state of foliage season and time your trip perfectly with our Foliage Tracker.
Here are our favorite locations to check out during foliage season:
Hogback Mountain is located about 5 miles away from the center of Wilmington and the lookout spot is known for the 1,000 mile view! Also located at the top of the mountain is the Hogback Mountain Country Store, Metcalfe’s Distillery & Beer Naked Brewery! Enjoy the view while sipping a local beverage or enjoying some maple ice cream!
Hike to the top of Haystack Mountain & enjoy the local foliage! The Haystack Mountain trail is 2.5 miles to the summit & you can see the Deerfield Valley on all sides.
Scenic Chairlift Ride @ Mount Snow
Get ready to experience one of the best scenic attractions in Vermont! Take the chairlift ride on Bluebird Express to the summit for a fun family activity. Walk around the summit for views extending into New Hampshire, New York, and Massachusetts. Then stop into the Bullwheel for a variety of hearty hot and cold sandwiches, sharable dishes, grab & go snacks, and an all VT draft list. With the observation deck overlooking Somerset Reservoir, The Bullwheel offers great food with a view!
