Foliage Report & Weekend events — 14 Comments

  1. Colors are starting to pop in Stowe, VT area – ride the gondola there, it’s pretty cool!

  2. Any idea what the leaves are looking like in The Finger Lakes Region of NY currently? We are headed up this weekend on the bikes and are hoping for great sites!

  3. Thank you! Appreciate reading all you’re posts & keeping people updated – it means a lot to people on the west coast (Washington state).

  4. Just a quick question. We are flying in to new York on Oct 6th – Oct 12th, renting are car to drive to Vermont (up to stowe), then over to New Hampshire heading south to Boston arena then back to New York. Here’s my question … should we stick a rend round New York for a couple days or head straight up to Vermont (just don’t want to miss the colors)? Thanks so much for keeping get us updated.

    • Head straight up and do NY when you get back. Remember Columbus day weekend means sharing the roads with a Million + close friends who happen to be leaf peepers… 🙂

  5. Thanks Jeff. Didn’t expect to see any colour in RI but as you say it is meant to be really pretty and if I’ve come this far then feel the need to see as much as I can.
    I’ll talk to the people taking me (private tour) and see if they can extend some time to go further north if need be when in VT. We drive on the other side of the road in Aus so I dare not try to drive myself and try to admire the scenery at the same time. That’s a disaster in the making! 🙂

    • Yup, I call it distracted driving of the worse sort I have driven on the other side of the road and know how much concentration it needs at first. 🙂 Good luck!

  6. Jeff
    Am totally freaking out. Coming from Australia to see the foliage (we don’t have any thing like it where I am from) and from all reports I may have picked the time or maybe even the wrong year! 🙁
    Oct 9 I’ll be in Boston.
    Oct 10 plan to go to Rhode Island
    Oct 11 – 12 taking an overnight road trip through NH and VT to the Quechee/Woodstock Area.
    Oct 13 back in Boston.
    Any thoughts, suggestions, calming advice … ???

    • Well maybe you did or didn’t and time will tell… Now take a deep breath as I look over your itinerary… If you read the blog I’ll be publishing in a short while… Cloudy and then about 7 days of mostly sunny weather. and then you arrive… No downside there… but Rhode Island? Well at least its darn pretty down there (wrong direction) but Quechee and Woodstock should have some color by that weekend 10/11. and if you have a smartphone or tablet you should be able to get updates in wifi at the B&B or hotel. You may still have to take a little bit of a drive north of Woodstock but I believe if we get the sun all next week you “should” be in the thick of it.

      There is a lot to do around the Woodstock area.. OH! they also have a covered bridge in town there… and in Quechee and in Taftsville on Route 4… I hope this helps…

  7. Good Morning Jeff!
    We were staying in Twin Mountain from Friday thru yesterday and in that time the colors went from spotty to VIBRANT by the time we were headed home via Rt. 3. It doesn’t take very long, as you know, once the turning begins. My only concern for people coming up this weekend is, as you stated, what the rain and wind will do to the landscape.
    My advice is to hit Rts. 3,302, 2, 26 and the Kanc. ASAP as they’ll be very close in my opinion. As long as the leaves hang on, this could quickly become another great season!
