Day trip from Montreal to Vermont

I will be in Montreal for a week long conference will 1 full "free" day to spare. I would like to take a day trip on Sept. 23rd to Vermont primarily for the fall foliage and beautiful scenery. I have never been to Vermont before so I am seeking advice on suggested route and itinerary driving from Montreal. Thank You.

Sept. 23rd is a little early for foliage color, though there will be some in the higher elevations in the northeastern corner of Vermont (known coloquially as the "Northeast Kingdome"). If that interests you, take Provincial Highway 10 to near Magog, connect to Highway 55 to the Vermont border, and Interstate 91 at Derby south. All of it is a pretty drive, but again, the colors won't be at peak. It's a couple hours' drive from Montreal to the I-91 border at Derby...

OTOH, a somewhat quicker drive out of Montreal to the Lake Champlain Islands of Vermont could be rewarding, albeit without color. The easiest route is Provincial Highway 15 to the Champlain NY border crossing, follow the signs to Rouse's Point and to Alburgh VT, and down Rt. 2 in Vermont to pretty towns like North Hero and South Hero.
