The Vermont Maple 100

Vermont is a mecca for those looking to get out and explore this fall. With hundreds of maple activities, adventures, or even just nature-inspired products you can find something that will suit your needs in the state's capital city Burlington as well as other nearby locations.

Here are some of the things that you can do during this family fun event that takes place mostly outside. This is ideal for families that want to enjoy fun activities and still be able to stay socially distant.

Scavenger hunt through the sugarbush

Birds are a common sight in Vermont, so it's no surprise that many bird species live here. But how do sugar makers affect these eco-systems? Learn what you can do to help! The Vermont Cheese Council has also planned a fun scavenger hunt where you can learn more about the environment, history, Vermonty cheeses, and maple creemees too! Find out more here.

Walk on a Farm Trail

Maple trees are beautiful and produce delicious sugar, but it doesn't stop there! You can take an on-farm trail and explore autumn as you make your way towards Thanksgiving — all while enjoying stunning views that change with each season. Find a farm trail here.
