For hikers, Yankee recommends five trails in the White Mountains, including the Edmands Path and Mount Eisenhower Loop, 6.6 miles, with a steep 4,760-foot ascent, beginning at a trailhead on Mount Clinton Road in Crawfords Purchase. Less challenging but with some rock scrambling is a 4.4-mile hike on the Welch-Dickey Loop Trail in Waterville Valley, with vistas of the Mad River Valley. Also on the list are the Mount Willard Trail, 3.2 miles, and longer hikes on Franconia Ridge (9 miles) and Mount Chocorua (Champney Falls Trail, 7.6 miles).

Since October is a peak month for color, it's only fitting that Yankee's travelogue on the Berkshires focuses on a place called October Mountain. The area may be better known for summer cultural offerings like the Tanglewood music festival and dance performances at Jacob's Pillow, but while fall is a quieter season, there's still plenty to do. Literary types will want to visit Arrowhead, where "Moby-Dick" author Herman Melville lived. Places to stay include the Topia Inn, a self-described "eco B&B" in Adams, while the Dream Away Lodge in Becket is known for a lively music scene -- including a famous visit decades ago by Bob Dylan's Rolling Thunder Review. Café Adam in Great Barrington is big with foodies.

The fall issue of Yankee also profiles Connecticut's Litchfield Hills, and follows Vermont's official foliage forecaster as he does his leaf-spotting.
