The 7 Best Places to See Fall Foliage in New England

Here's where to leaf peep across the Eastern border.


By Alyssa Giacobbe, Town & Country

Whether you’re on the hunt for rare maples or just out for the pretty colors, New England’s last party before the long winter is undeniable Insta-candy. Here are seven brilliant routes to take.

New Hampshire’s Kancamagus Highway

Call it the Kanc, if you want to sound like a local, and drive its 35 miles, starting in Lincoln, through the White Mountain National Forest in late September/early October. Be sure to stop at the C.L. Graham Overlook just below the summit of Kancamagus Pass, then picnic at Sabbaday Falls in Conway, a half-mile walk from the trail head that ends in a waterfall, before heading north to Bretton Woods on 302. There, you’ll be treated to blazing views of Mount Washington, the highest peak in the Northeast.

Vermont’s Route 100

The billboard-free Route 100 winds through some of Vermont’s most quintessentially Vermonty villages, with all the cider donuts and country stores that go with them. For peak views, hike to the top of Mount Killington, then continue on. Your ultimate destination: The 11-mile Green Mountain Byway which runs between Waterbury and Stowe. End with a weekend in Stowe or Mad River Valley for farm-to-table dining and plenty of craft beer and, through October 15, the chance to fly among the foliage at Stowe’s ZipTour, a nearly two-mile zipline.

Maine’s Coastal Route 1

Start in Portland and head north on “Old Route 1” for one of New England’s most scenic coastal drives. Stop along the way in Brunswick, Bath, or Rockport (you can’t go wrong with any) for seaside mansions, lighthouses, and late-season lobster rolls; hit up Freeport for the L.L. Bean flagship. End in the quaint town of Camden, whose prime leaf-peeping vehicles include Merryspring, a 66-acre park and nature center, and autumn sails on the Schooner Surprise

Massachusetts’s Mohawk Trail

The 63-mile trail, which follows a Native American trade route, runs east to west through the northwest part of the state, straddling the Berkshire Mountains between the Hudson and Connecticut River valleys. There are mountain streams and plenty of pit stops, including the Golden Eagle restaurant, along the trail’s famous Hairpin Turn (the food is decent, the view unbeatable). End in (or circle back to) North Adams, where a recent 130,000-square-foot expansion has rendered MassMoCA, the Massachusetts Museum of Contemporary Art, constructed in a converted factory complex, one of the country’s biggest museums.

Massachusetts’s Route 6A

Passing through several postcard-perfect classic Cape Cod villages, rural route 6A is a lot more pleasant with fall’s traffic reprieve. Start just after the Sagamore Bridge and follow the road through scenic Sandwich, the Cape’s oldest town. From there, roll on to Yarmouth Port and through to Dennis and finally Brewster, home to 19th century sea captain homes and Nickerson State Park, whose 22-mile Cape Cod Rail Trail offers plenty of views to be seen on foot. Peak season hits late here, so it’s perfect if you find yourself looking for leaves come mid-October or even later.

Rhode Island’s Ocean Drive

This one you can, and should, do by bike. Rent a pair of wheels at Newport Bicycle then start out on the Bellevue Avenue side of the Ocean Drive Loop, an 11-mile waterfront route that passes through the American yellowwoods, European beeches, and stately mansions of Bellevue before opening out onto Ocean Drive, offering dual views of Rhode Island Sound on your left and jaw-dropping colors on your right. End at the equally scenic Newport Harbor, where you might pull up to Belle’s Café in the Shipyard for coffee and yacht-views.
