Late September is Peak Fall Foliage in Northwestern Vermont, Central and Northern New York

Start making plans… It’s fall foliage roadtrip time! Late September is prime time for fall foliage in Northwestern Vermont, Central and Northern New York. Now’s the time to plan that perfect fall foliage drive!

The country’s most panoramic fall vistas can be seen from the Northeast’s Interstate highways. In New York “The Adirondack Northway”, Interstate 87 has some of the best views anywhere. Beginning in Saratoga Springs and northward thru Glens Falls, Lake George,Plattsburg, and on to the Canadian border.

Vermont’s I-89 is a beautiful drive anytime of year, but fall is especially breathtaking. Late September in Northwestern Vermont means peak autumn colors along I-89 northward from Montpelier, thru Stowe,Burlington, St. Albans, and on to the Canadian border.

What’s cool about viewing fall colors from the Interstate? The experience is totally different in either direction. Drive north on I-89, turn around and head south and you’ll see a whole new perspective right before your eyes! You can easily spend several days exploring small towns and villages directly off the Interstate exits along the way.

Check out our fall foliage maps to find peak colors in your area.
