Macedonia Brook State Park in Kent offers plenty of leaf peeping opportunities, like this view from a hiking trail leading to the summit of Cobble Mountain. This photo may show the pre-fall foliage landscape, but it is easy to imagine how beautiful this spot looks once the autumn colors explode.
Getting There: From Kent Center, take Route 341 west for approximately 2 miles. Take first right onto Macedonia Brook Road, which takes you into the park. (Bear left at the fork.) Office and parking lot are located 1 mile inside the park. Trail maps are available. Take white blazed Cobble Mountain Trail. The overlook has views across the Harlem Valley to the Taconic and Catskill Mountains.
