well you can forget about the weekend of the 10-13 thats columbus day weekend a major leef peeping weekend everything is probably already booked with bus tours and the like. I would say if you want norther vermont then the first weekend of october and if you southern vermont is easier i would say the third weekend in october would be the one

The first weekend in october works better for me. The last weekend of sept is parents weekend at my daughters college and october is the fall crew racing season with the Head of the Charles and the Head of the Fish regattas. I work sundays normally so I would have to put in for a day off or make it a saturday only for me which wouldn't be a problem if it ends up in Vt. Most of Vt. is only a couple hours drive for me. In most years the leaves are pretty much gone by the third week of october if this is aimed at shooting fall foliage. I went on a Columbus Day weekend camping trip several years ago in the Lk. Placid area and there was more snow than foliage.
