We’re nearing the end of the season of the peak for Vermont fall foliage but that doesn’t mean it isn’t still beautiful out there, especially with all the wonderful covered bridges in our neck of the woods!
One of the nicest things about the Woodstock, Vermont area is that it’s always scenic. Even the worst days of weather have a hard time spoiling the view. Some say it’s the gently rolling countryside that makes the area so picturesque. Others point out our historic and friendly communities. Then, of course, there are the area’s numerous covered bridges.
We tend to see the area’s beauty as a combination of all these things and more – but those covered bridges are really neat looking, aren’t they? This is especially true when they’re surrounded by Vermont fall foliage.
Peak Vermont Fall Foliage
As we mentioned at the top, the peak for this year’s Vermont fall foliage is generally past. While there is no one perfect time to see the fall foliage at its peak, there is a ballpark season for viewing the best of it.
The annual color change tends to begins in mid-September and last for the first two to three weeks of October. This varies by elevation, of course, progressing from north to south and higher to lower elevations during the season. Temperature variations and the effect of wind and rain play a role, too.
Even past peak season, however, the Woodstock area often retains beautiful displays of fall foliage well into November. Going out for a drive or day-trip to see the area remains a special treat even when the most spectacular autumn colors have faded.
