Regardless of whether you call it fall or autumn, you’ll be blown away by the changing colours of the Green Mountain State. This five-day hiking adventure will see you strolling through rolling farmland, reaching rarefied air as you ascend a 4000-footer, gazing into Canada on a clear day and enthusiastically chasing waterfalls. You'll also be able to restock your energy levels with stops at a maple farm, the Ben and Jerry’s factory and a cider mill, meaning you won’t be far from a sweet treat to reward the days’ efforts.
