During the last week of September, autumn color spreads across northern Vermont. Photographers, searching for the best locations and the most scenic small villages, should drive in a large loop around the northern part of the state. From Stow, Vermont, head north through Smuggler's Notch over Mount Mansfield through the crossroads at Jeffersonville. Cross the river, turn east, and follow Route #109 to Waterville where you’ll head north to Montgomery Center and turn right on Route #58 through Hazens Notch State Park to find this narrow, unpaved road through a dense forest of autumn color. You'll see the best color late in the afternoon.
