Fall Foliage Roadtrip

Hi there! Looking for suggestions on stops/nice places to stay/activities along a route from Boston to Quebec City then down to Plattsburg NY. Planning to stay in NH White Moutains area one night and then need a place between there and QC. From QC whats good on the way back down to NY? Looking for fall sights, cute bed and breakfasts, beautiful drives, shorter hikes. Any suggestions welcome! Thank you!

The area between Montreal and the NYS border (& continuing on to basically Plattsburg) is rather flat, nondescript farmland, not fall foliage terrain, and not hiking terrain. In Montreal itself there are plenty of places to walk including along the St. Lawrence waterfront, on St. Helen's island, or along the Lachine canal. Hopefully others can chime in on the area from QC towards Montreal - it's been a while since I've been there so I can't say.

One short hike I've been meaning to take near Plattsburgh is at Ausable Chasm. ausablechasm.com We didn't stop last time through a few weeks ago due to a torrential downpour. Maybe next time.

Sutton is a good stop between Quebec City and NY.

The Northern Kingdom area of Vermant is rich in foliage, covered bridges and nice hikes.
You can take the gondola to the top of Jay and hike down if you wish.

It is our favourite part of New England

The Magog/North Hatley area of Quebec is very scenic. Magog is a pleasant resort town on a lake with a beautiful park-prominade along the lake. Unfortunately downtown Magog is undergoing a major renovation, so you can't drive through the main street. North Hatley is a small, quiet lakeside village, home to one of Quebec's best inn/restaurants, Hovey Manor. Close by is the scenic St Benoit Abby, which you can tour. This area is also close to Quebec's wine country, with about 2 dozen picturesque wineries. The busy, sprawling city of Sherbrooke has lots of shopping,dining and traffic. North of Sherbrooke, the countryside is very rural farm country until you get to Drummondville. a nice enough, low key little city.

It is nature's way not to stick to the calendar to install the forest colours in fall. A number of Quebec websites keep track and follow the changes across the province's abundant woods. Here is one, promising to open a map in September:
