Leaf-peeping season is fast approaching, and it's about time you took that epic fall road trip through New England. With so much to discover along the way, it's helpful to plan out your pit stops and photo-worthy hikes. Luckily, we've done the leg work for you. Following the typical wave of foliage as it sweeps north to south, our leaf peeping road trip winds through Maine, Vermont, New Hampshire, Massachusetts, and touches down in Connecticut. While mid-October is usually the sweet spot, check out a peak fall foliage map to make sure you'll get the brightest colors.
