There is nothing like cycling through rural Vermont during the fall foliage season. The brilliant Red, Yellow, & Gold shout out to be seen against the conifers of green and brown.
Many of the first areas to start changing will be the marshy lands near lakes, streams and other bodies of water. As the season progresses so will the changes in the northern higher elevations working towards the southern regions. There is no perfect time to visit, In early season views are wonderful from “up top” looking down into the color spackled valleys.
Once the higher elevations change the panoramic views will be stunning and the view looking up the mountains will be filled with the abundance of color from where ever you are.
From the time the change starts through the end of the season you will be presented with some startling views that will remain in your memory for years to come
Cycle to see the best colors
Cycling on Route 100 Scenic Byway, voted a Top 10 scenic road in the U.S. (New York Times)is one of the best places to view fall foliage in New England (U.S. News and World Report). While on your Great Bike Central Vermont six day cycling tour you will not only be able to enjoy this location, but others also. The lovely New England towns of Woodstock, Quechee, Brandon and Middlebury all have something special to offer.
Reflections off Lake Champlain
As the season progresses more than the leave change color, they sky seems bluer and the surface of Lake Champlain seems dark and on calm days the flat mirror like surface is the perfect background for photographers wanting to get that perfect shot.
