Surprise! The fall colors are still here! — 9 Comments

  1. Concerned we won’t be seeing anything along route 100 – or anywhere. Arriving this coming Saturday (late) and planning on the 100 drive on Sunday. What do you think our best bet is to see color Londonderry and north.

    • Well from everything I’m hearing is much of the northern color has been knocked down but I saw a shot of Smugglers notch from this morning and while closed (probably for the season) it still looked pretty. Mt Mansfield all white above and a little color on the trees but by Sunday??? I think you’ll be enjoying a hot cider at Cold Hollow and a cider donut and enjoying the color in little swatches. There will be some maples late to the party and they may have pretty color this weekend but depending on your reservations you might do better looking at Massachusetts or Connecticut or even Rhode Island…

  2. Thanks for the tip on the Durgin bridge; the drive to it was AMAZING. We spent Thursday night in Jackson, NH and saw good color. Drove Hurricane Mountain Road – BEAUTIFUL. The drive from Grafton, VT to Walpole, NH was colorful yesterday, but a lot of leaves were falling.
    Heading to Woodstock for a couple of days.
    Was wondering if you have any reports on Bar Harbour….heading there Tuesday.

  3. Hey Jeff,
    We have had a wonderful trip through Northern VT, NH and near Bar Harbor in Maine over the past 2 weeks.. But we have found the greatest color over the past 2 days on Rt. 9 from Brattleboro to Bennington, VT. Looks like 80-90% to us. On our way to Thomaston, CT Tomorrow.

  4. Hello Jeff,
    It is great to hear this!
    Will Stowe still be a good place to go this weekend?

    Thank you,

    • Well if you meant last weekend, you already know.. SNOW! this coming weekend? then I would say not if fall color is your main goal. MA, RI and CT will be the areas with the best chance of fall colors. But Stowe will be quiet and I would be a few trees might still have colors… If nothing else the Larch will be turning golden very soon! I always try to see the bright side. Visit a couple covered bridges, get some cider at Cold hollow and take a tour of Ben and Jerrys! See all sorts of things to do… 🙂 Sorry if I missed this but it for some reason went to spam and I didn’t see it till now.

  5. Yer killin’ me! I’m already back from Mt. Washington area and Stowe area. I live in Georgia. I CANT go back!!
