The Awesome Hike That Will Take You To The Most Spectacular Fall Foliage In New York

It’s no secret that New York’s hiking trails are most crowded during our summer months, leading many of us to hold off on taking our favorite hikes until fall rolls around. Not only do we have a higher chance of having our most beloved trails to ourselves, we also get to enjoy the perks of not having to deal with bugs, enjoying the crisp mountain air and most of all – enjoying the gorgeous foliage. Each region of our state has their own magical spot that’s best for viewing the fall colors, but there’s one right in the Capital Region that always seems to be a fan favorite around this time of year. Check it out!

We’re aware that these uncertain times are limiting many aspects of life as we all practice social and physical distancing. While we’re continuing to feature destinations that make our state wonderful, we don’t expect or encourage you to go check them out immediately. We believe that supporting local attractions is important now more than ever and we hope our articles inspire your future adventures! And on that note, please nominate your favorite local business that could use some love right now: https://www.onlyinyourstate.com/nominate/
