A 61-mile open loop that passes through picturesque villages and hilly countryside in the Piedmont of central Vermont. The 61-mile Quechee-Coolidge Scenic Drive passes through some of Vermont’s finest landscapes. This land, part of the New England Uplands or Piedmont, is a plateau-like region of low, rolling hills incised by river valleys. The drive offers not only superb scenic views but also a good look at rural Vermont and its sleepy country villages, the abrupt Quechee Gorge, gentrified Woodstock, historic Plymouth and the birthplace of President Calvin Coolidge, and the central Green Mountains.
Special attractions: Quechee Gorge State Park, Woodstock, Billings Farm and Museum, Coolidge State Park, Calvin Coolidge Homestead and Birthplace, Plymouth Notch Historic District, Plymouth Cheese Corporation, Killington Ski Area, Gifford Woods State Park, White River National Fish Hatchery, historic sites, shopping, hiking, old-growth forests, downhill skiing, cross-country skiing, camping, and autumn foliage.
