Treat yourself to boutique accommodations in Fairfield County, Connecticut with Hotel Zero Degrees this fall and enjoy some of the best leaf-peeping anywhere!
Fall in New England is world-famous for the color show the region’s deciduous trees and shrubs put on once they start petering off in the photosynthesis department. Comfortably ensconced in your room or suite at Hotel Zero Degrees Danbury or Norwalk, you’ll have these postcard-perfect canopies at your fingertips.
There’s plenty of color to enjoy right around our hotels in the form of street trees, parks, and gardens, but we also recommend the following day trips for soaking up the botanical beauty to the fullest!
Lucius Pond Ordway/Devil’s Den Preserve
This Nature Conservancy property is, at close to 1,800 acres in area, the biggest piece of protected natural land in Fairfield County, and well worth visiting any time of year. But these rolling woods really pull out all the stops in the fall…
Collis P. Huntington State Park
Plenty of reds, yellows, and oranges await you in the ample wooded acreage of Collis P. Huntington State Park as well. Just remember to wear some color yourself—blaze orange, to be exact—if you’ll be hiking in those parts of the park open to bowhunting during the deer archery season.
The Long Island Sound shore of Connecticut’s “Gold Coast” enjoys some of the latest fall colors in the state thanks to the southerly, maritime-influenced location. Sherwood Island State Park—the oldest state park in Connecticut, mind you—is an excellent place to take in the show.
Squantz Pond State Park & the Pootatuck State Forest
An extensive (and beautiful) trail network in these adjoining parcels of land in the vicinity of Candlewood Lake gives leaf-peeping hikers plenty to feast on in the colorful-canopy department.
When to Take in the Fall Colors of Fairfield County
Fall colors in Fairfield County aren’t on an exact schedule, of course, and the specific timetable and vibrancy of the foliage change varies on a year-by-year basis due to specific weather conditions. On average, though, our colors reach their zenith in late October and early November. Keep in mind, however, that you’re likely to enjoy photogenic fall displays before and after that peak window.
You can keep abreast of up-to-date foliage conditions at this official state fall-color tracker, by the way!
