Best Fall Foliage Drives in New England

Peak season is here and the fall foliage is spectacular! Here’s our guide to the best fall foliage drives and motorcycle rides in New England.

The Mohawk Trail, Massachusetts

Better known as Route 2, this was New England’s first official scenic highway. Start all the way in Pittsfield for a peak at Mount Greylock, and be sure to stop in Shelbourne Falls for a quick stretch.

State Route 169, Connecticut

​If you drive only one tree-lined Connecticut road this fall, make it State Route 169, starting in North Woodstock and traveling south to Newent.

The Road to Rangeley, Maine

Start in Portland or in Bethel to explore the mountains and lakes of western Maine during the pinnacle season of the year.

Route 100, Vermont

Skiiers know this route well. It cuts straight up the middle of the state, running 146 miles from the Massachusetts border all the way to Canada. If you have the time to drive all of it, you can see leaves at various color stages as you change latitude and altitude.

Plus, the Vermont Country Store is right on Route 100 in Weston—it’s a must-see!
