3 easy steps to finding fall foliage locations

  1. Signs showing the way around Danby Vermont

    Where do you want to go?

    To find great fall foliage locations, get a detailed map book, I prefer the Gazetteers by Delorme, click the link to visit my page with planning tools from Amazon) but even if you purchase an atlas of New England from the local gas station, you will have a good starting point.

  2. Get a coffee (or drink of preference) and sit down at the table and look it over. (the back pages of a Gazetteer have listings of items of interest. Foliage locations have some of the following things in common.
    1. What I look for are rivers with easy access, an old bridge (covered bridge is nice) or maybe a stone bridge.
    2. Also ponds that might have a grist mill, or pond side barn or buildings, You can check in Google earth later to see the view from above.
    3. Look for small towns like Newfane Vermont, Petersham MA, Woodstock NH, or Sunday River Maine. (this list goes on for hundreds of pages, sorry, can’t list them all). 
  3. Make a list that you can refer to with pages in the map book, so that when you are on the road you can refer to it and where you are. If you come to a sign post that says Covered Bridge Lane or Meeting House Road, TAKE IT!!!
