Vermont Fall Foliage Reports

NOTE - Deer season starts in early October - When you dress for a hike, items of blaze-orange clothing that are visible from all directions are best, such as a cap and vest.  And don't forget your four-legged pal. Pet stores carry blaze-orange collars and mesh vests for Fido's safety, too. It's not a bad idea either to stick to established trails and limit off-trail hiking at this time of year.
