Barre to Danville Scenic Drive Professional Review and Guide
"A 49-mile drive through rolling hills and picturesque country villages in Vermont’s upland region. The route crosses rolling, wooded hills and dales and passes through picture-postcard villages. This area, encompassing Orange and southern Caledonia counties, is quintessential Vermont.
Its lovely landscape is a verdant tapestry broken by modest pastures and farmhouses tucked against hills clad in hardwoods and dark evergreens. Tidy, well-preserved villages crowned by white-spired churches sit atop humped ridges and nestle in shallow valleys. Special attractions: Barre, Rock of Ages Quarry, Groton State Forest, Peacham, country churches, quaint villages, trout fishing, cross-country skiing, and hiking. This eTrail is a complete description of a scenic drive with a route map and information on the best travel seasons, interesting sites, recreation opportunities, camping locations, and much more."
