fall foliage trip from Boston this weekend


My wife and I are planning to visit new england for a fall foliage trip for the first time. We have 2 full days (14th, 15th) to go around (flying in and out of Boston on 13/16 respectively).

The following is what I planned

1. 14th : Drive out early from Boston

2. Cover south NH (Peterborough, Keene)

3. Cover south Vermont (Bennington)

4. Stay the night at North Adams

5. 15th: Drive south to see the berkshires area

6. Mohawk trail

7. stay the night in Boston

8. 16th : Fly out from Boston

I read the fall season is early this year - will the above route still have good color? Other than the Mohawk trail, is there any other route in the above itinerary that should not be missed ? Is there any other town that we should go through other than the ones mentioned.

General comments on the above itinerary are also be welcome.

I think you should see lots of good color.

You should visit the NH towns of Hancock, Harrisville, and Walpole in addition to the ones you mention. I Walpole, splurge on some chocolate at L.A. Burdick. Best buy, in my opinion, is the 8-oz. (I think) bars.

Enjoy your trip.
