4 days in vermont

Planning a trip. Any routes you'd care to share? Must do roads? I should be able to do a bit of damage in 4 days. Looking for twisties and covered bridges during the day. Coffee in the morning. Beer at night.

Not sure exactly what you are looking for, but if you search on the BMW rally back in July you should get some good ideas. There were extensive talks on scenic routes then. I do some riding in VT, but I think you are looking for more paved sections, right? At the end of my report here there is a gpx file for the Bayley-Hazen road. Unpaved, but very scenic.

I posted a track in this thread last week. Mixture of dirt/pavement, mostly dirt roads and then Smuggler's Notch thrown in for good measure. There is only one kink I did not fix (go along route 12 from Worcester to Elmore, then Elmore Mtn. Rd. into Stowe).

Enjoy.

Check out the gaps around Stowe the roads are incredible. I did a 4 day trip from NYC to VT and back and found some incredible roads both on and off. I will go back and see if I still have my GPS routes, if not I can def. give you some great dirt roads I hit.

I tent camped in Stowe at one of those big old fashioned non KOA campgrounds.
There was a creek running through the place.

Just back from Prudhoe Bay, IMO it was really worth the trip, AK is a beautiful place & you need lots of time to take it all in. I'm looking forward to returning & exploring some places i didn't have time to ride.RIP Ron Melton

That would be the Gold Brook campground. There is a great classic car show there in the summer.

Happy to see this thread revived. I plan on another trip this summer. I can't really remember where I went after starting this thread. I tend to get on my bike and see where the road leads me. For that reason, I like having a basic destination, but, not stuck to a certain route. June 11th I might be able to swing. sounds like a good trip, as long local beer is included at night
