Suggestions for fall foliage road tours in the Champlain Lowlands and Northern Green Mountains.

This is an ideal touring area if you find that color has fallen off in the more mountainous areas. This area is one of the last to change. It has a lot of swamps which often provide great photo opportunities, especially in the early mornings.



Lake Champlain foliage route

This would be a great fall foliage day trip. It's very diverse with mountains, rivers, rolling farmland, islands, beautiful villages, covered bridges and places to shop and/or have lunch.

Your trip starts in the tiny village of Cambridge. Head north in route 108 to Enosburg Falls. In Enosburg Falls Route 108 meets route 105. Take 105 west past the junctions of 105 & 236 and 105 & 110 to the junction of 105 & 78. Proceed onto route 78. This will take you through the village of Swanton and into the Champlain Islands. Drive down through the Island on Route 2. This will bring you all the way through the islands. You will pass through the towns and villages of: Alburg, Grand Isle and South Hero and eventually you will be brought back onto the mainland where you'll continue on route 2A to Essex Junction. The last leg of your trip will be on route 15 northeast back to your starting point of Cambridge.
