A Fall Foliage Ramble

Our journey explores a pastoral early-American landscape beneath a canopy of fall colors.

We’ll spend our days on leisurely rambles exploring rolling hills, farms, and forests, where we’ll learn how The Trust for Public Land is working with Vermont communities to permanently protect complex landscapes.

Evenings bring luxurious respite at three unique properties: Shelburne Farms, a National Historic Landmark estate founded by William Seward and Lila Vanderbilt Webb; Topnotch Resort, a stunning mountain retreat; and Woodstock Inn, the vision of Laurance Rockefeller.

Our travels will include a day of exploration in the picturesque town of Stowe. You might opt for a guided hike up Hunger Mountain, or hop aboard the gondola for a lift to the top of equally panoramic Mount Mansfield. We will offer an optional canoe paddle on Green River Reservoir, its waters crimson and gold with reflected fall color. We follow the Mad River Valley south to Marsh-Billings- Rockefeller National Historic Park and the Billings Farm & Museum, in Woodstock. Closing dinner will be at the legendary Simon Pearce Studio in Quechee.
