Leaf-peeping influencers are clogging a Vermont backroad. The town is closing it

  • The town of Pomfret, Vermont has closed a popular dirt road to nonresidents due to overcrowding and bad behavior by tourists. Residents have been affected by blocked traffic, parking issues, and even tourists relieving themselves on private property.
  • The increase in traffic along the road, driven by tourism interest in private properties, has become a significant problem, prompting the town to take action. The road is temporarily closed until mid-October 2023 to ensure safety, protect the environment, and maintain quality of life for residents.
  • Local residents and authorities are urging tourists to enjoy the beautiful foliage in Vermont but to be considerate by pulling off the road before stopping to take pictures. It is hoped that this will prevent further damage and disruptions caused by poorly behaved tourists.
