Route 100 - weekend of Oct 10th


I'm planning to take route 100 up to the Grand Isle state park for a camping trip the weekend of Oct 10th. Is it too late for the foliage? Should I take the trip a week earlier 10/2? Thanks for your help!

As long as the camping ground is open, you should be fine. "The islands" are one of the last places to have its leaves turn in Vermont. Climate is modified by the lake and low altitude.

Don't forget to visit the Hackett's and Allenholm Apple Orchards in South Hero, supposedly a good year for apples. There is also Snow Farm ( Vineyards/ Winery) in South Hero to visit. In the area, the Blue Paddle Bistro is a good place to have a nice dinner.

The foliage should be super at that time.

Rt 100 doesn't go to Grand Isle. From Rt. 100, you'd take I-89 from Waterbury north ~40 min, then take Exit 17 to Rt. 2 north to the 'Champlain Islands'. Grand Isle is ~6 miles or so from I-89 exit 17. The foliage should be looking good then.
