I was out of the state for peak foliage, but I did get up to the Northeast Kingdom for some just past peak hiking.  The Wheeler Mountain Trail is relatively new and just lovely.  There’s a nice walk through the woods at an easy grade and then you pop out onto giant slabs with excellent views.

The trail is around 2.2 miles long.  Unfortunately, we were very pressed for time and had to turn around just before the summit.  I hope to get back to the NEK soon to explore this and other trails.
