Not at all worth for fall foliage. It's like we went to roam around hardford garden. Rather than add other places like poconos mountain or catskills which have better fall foliage.

I recommend this tour!

Nice trip. We had enough time enjoying the wonderful views at Mark Twain House and Talcott Mountain State Park. The time allowed at Bushnell park was a little bit short because we had to make it to Mark Twain house, but it was fine with me. The tour guide Lawrence did a good job letting us know what to expect next.
