Fall Foliage

2012 Foliage Season Begins!

by Vermont.com Staff

Fall Foliage MapWhile the majority of Vermont is still green, there are a few pockets of color starting to appear on individual trees here-and-there. It won’t be long before we start to see a wonderful display in the Green Mountains. We’re looking forward to seeing the yellows, oranges, and reds that typically dot the country roads of Vermont.

It’s fair season too! Checkout the Vermont.com Calendar of Events to find craft fairs, agricultural fairs, food fairs, and local fairs of all types & sizes throughout the state. Don’t see the fair you’re looking for? Feel free to suggest an event so we can add it to our Calendar.

Keep checking back here as we continue to gather information from our “Leaf Squad” to report foliage conditions throughout the state!

From mid-September through late October, we will become surrounded by a spectacular show of colors. In the meantime you can find some gorgeous Fall scenery in Vermont.com’s Autumn Photo Gallery, thanks to local photographers and visitors to Vermont… But truly, you’ve got to be here to fully enjoy the leaves. We hope you come see the beautiful fall colors of Vermont!

Parts of our updates are thanks to the USDA Forest Service, the Vermont Department of Tourism, and various “Leaf Peepers” around the state.

The map is an approximation of the foliage color progression throughout the season. The changes generally spread from the higher, cooler areas of the Green Mountains down into the Champlain and Connecticut River Valleys (moving from north to south across Vermont).
