Written Directions

Take Rt 30 NW out of Brattleboro VT. That's all there is to it. Stay on it till about Poultney, VT on the NY border.

Scenery

Lots of vistas, pretty farms and photo ops. Mountain ranges, rolling hills, forests and valleys. Travels through Green Mountain National Forest. Covered bridge after covered bridge. It almost gets redundant. Lots and lots of cows, and farms.

Road Quality

Road quality is fine, though you'll encounter lots of hills, though not a lot of sharp turns. We encountered some sport bike speed demons, but other than that, the ride was a really relaxing.

Roadside Amenities

Tiny towns, not a lot of stops for shops, except in Manchester, which is quite a pretty town. You travel through the Green Mountain National Forest for a hunk of this ride. There's clusters of antique shops, and enough places to stop and gas up, or grab a nosh; to satisfy your needs. Note: One thing we noted was how much more depressed the rural areas of New York are, as opposed to Vermont. Same sort of farmland, and terrain, but a vast difference in quality of life for the farmers. Vermont really promotes family farms, and it shows.

The road was very nice and would have gotten a higher rating if there had been more covered bridges. We only saw 3 from Brattleboro to Dorset. Maybe there were more beyond Dorset but we bailed as this was not what we expected.
