Appalachian Trail Adventures (ATA) provides an affordable guided hiking and kayaking vacation in the Green Mountain National Forest for all abilities. ATA is excited the fall foliage hiking season is around the corner and reservations for prime foliage in October are filling up. Watch Vermont’s Green Mountains transform as Mother Nature works her artistry coloring the mountainsides with brilliant oranges, reds and yellows mixed between the evergreen trees. ATA recommends a visit between September 22nd  through October 10th  for those leaf peepers seeking to experience the fall foliage at its peak color.

The days are getting shorter and the leaves are starting to turn. The weather is mild and pleasant, fall is around the corner! Some people may hang their boots up until spring, but some of the best hiking of the year is waiting. There is more wildlife to see, including migrating birds. Fewer hikers on the trail, no insects and the cool air makes an easier time on the trail.  Don’t wait until the last minute to book, we already have a fair amount of hikers scheduled.

“My friend and I went for a week over the July holiday. ATA totally exceeded my expectations-hiking in the morning, kayaking in the afternoon, good food & tasty microbrews at the lodge bar. I really can’t say enough good things!”
