Fall Foliage 2019 - A Glimpse

Explorer Lens

2019 has been an amazing year for us, especially in terms of travelling.
We have explored new places, immersed ourselves into the beauty of nature, witnessed breathtaking natural wonders, captured lifetime memories, had some great adventures and experienced moments which will be with us forever.

We planned our last trip of the year to witness one of the best Fall Foliage on the East Coast of USA. The Great Smokey Mountain National Park is always on the top of the list when we talk about 
watching fall colors, but we didn’t go there, instead visited the 2nd best on the list – New Hemisphere, Vermont and Upstate New York.

Here are glimpse of the places we visited in these 3 states in two and half days.
I would recommend these places if you wish to witness one of the best fall colors of East Coast.

1. Echo Lake
Echo Lake State Park is a great place to witness the fall colors. The water is
    crystal clear and the reflection of the colorful mountains on the water looks
    stunning. You can also canoe and swim in the water.
    There is an entry fee of $10 for the state park.


2. Cathedral Ledge
In the vicinity of the Echo Lake, there is a great hiking/climbing point – Cathedral
    Ledge. You can either climb to the top or even drive your way up there.

    The views of the entire valley from the top are just breathtaking.

3. New Hampshire's Kancamagus Highway
It is one of the most scenic highways of USA to observe the spectacular fall foliage.
    You get to witness about 27 miles of jaw-dropping views of the White Mountain
    with lot of sightseeing and overlook points.
    There are also lot of trails in the way, if you love hiking.

    So if you want to see tons of gorgeous fall colors, this is the highway to get on.
    Make sure to visit when the fall colors are at their peak.

4. Vermont's Route 100
Though the entire route 100 is more than 200 miles long, I would recommend
    to start from Waterbury and drive all the way till Stowe.
    You get to see picturesque views of the Green Mountains and the highlight of the
    drive is Mount Mansfield. It is the highest mountain in Vermont and is also the
    most visited mountain here. During the fall season, it is recommended to take the
    Gondola ride to the top which cost around $30 /adult, but is worth every penny.

5. Lake George
After witnessing tons of amazing fall colors in New Hemisphere and Vermont, it is
    time to observe the beauty of fall in Upstate New York.
    One of the best points to witness the same is from the India Head Trail. As Lake
    George lies in the vicinity, it is a good option to book accommodation near Lake
    George and get stunning views of the lake in the morning with mountains in the

6. Indian Head Trail
I would highly recommend this place to all the fall lovers who are also ok with
    moderate level hiking.
    Indian Head Trail is an 11 mile heavily trafficked loop trail, with moderate level of
    hike. The trail is gorgeous with beautiful fall views. At many places you
    can see tons of leaves scattered on the ground and many falling from the trees
    which looks magical.

     The view from the top is fantabulously fantastic. It is worth your time, money
     and everything you have spent to reach here.
