Vermont Maple in Autumn
Discover the magic of Vermont in Autumn, as Mother Nature uses our maple sugar trees to paint the mountainsides with vibrant colors. Trails through the sugar woods are littered with colorful carpets of Autumn leaves.
Fall frosts bring on spectacular maple leaf color displays causing tree food energy (sugar) to be converted into starch and stored in the trees root tissues for the winter.
Enjoy autumn foliage! Wind your way along some of Vermont’s less traveled roads and discover sugarhouses open to the public for tours. Remember, Maple is the Flavor of Vermont so don’t leave for home without some! At home, enjoy the fruits of the harvest with Maple Harvest Custard and Maple Apple Upside Down Cake.
