Each autumn we’re spoiled here in New England. For a few short weeks the trees burst with brilliant reds, oranges, and yellows as they put on one final show before winter. So before all the leaves fall, take time to get out there and catch a glimpse of the famous New England foliage.
We’ve compiled a list of routes throughout New England that are sure to satisfy your fall foliage cravings:
- In Massachusetts, consider a road trip along the Mohawk Trail(Rt. 2.) As you wind through the picturesque northern Berkshires, keep riding west on Rt. 2 until you hit Shelburne Falls, a quaint village in the Deerfield River Valley featuring natural beauty, talented artisans and small shops. Be sure to walk over the Bridge of Flowers during your visit.
- In Connecticut, the Department of Environmental Protection recommends visiting Macedonia Brook State Park, Mohawk State Forest or Pachaug State Forest for some quality leaf peeping.
- In New Hampshire, take a ride around Lake Winnipesaukee, where the water acts as a brilliant contrast to the reds, yellows and oranges. And for those willing, a hike up Mount Major will result in stunning aerial views of the lake.

Whether you’re chasing foliage, carving pumpkins or cozying up to a fire, we hope you can get out there and take advantage of another wonderful fall weekend in New England!
