Written DirectionsStart out in the town of Waitsfield and take Route 100 south for a short mile and then get on Route 17 heading west. You'll Pass Mad River Glen ski area. Continue on to the town of South Starksboro (end). About a 15 mile trip.
SceneryBeautiful country, mountains everywhere...and the twisties, amazing! Along the way you'll pass through the Camel's Hump State Forest.
Drive EnjoymentPretty good. They just re-paved a small section that was very questionable, so the road conditions improved greatly. Couple of bumps here and there, but good overall. Watch out for sand around MarchApril.
Tourism OpportunitiesPlenty to see. Nice spot at the picnic table. Good resting area up top. Great hiking too.
