Southern Green Mountains Scenic Drive Professional Review and Guide

"This 69-mile drive explores the southern Green Mountains, the northern Taconic Mountains, and the Vermont Valley. The two-part 69-mile Southern Green Mountains Drive explores a remote slice of the Green Mountains before dipping across the Vermont Valley at Manchester and driving a series of pastoral back roads through the northern Taconic Mountains along the New York border. The roads traverse a wide variety of topography, including broad valleys, intimate vales, and densely wooded mountains. Foliage season is excellent along this drive.

The first drive segment, a narrow dirt road in Green Mountain National Forest, is passable only during the summer and autumn months. The rest of the drive is open year-round. Special attractions: Green Mountain National Forest, Big Branch Wilderness Area, Hapgood Pond Recreation Area, Batten Kill River, Long Trail, Bromley Ski Area, Manchester villages, Hildene, American Museum of Fly Fishing, Southern Vermont Arts Center, Dorset, Dorset Playhouse, Merck Forest and Farmland Center, Pawlet, Danby, fly fishing, hiking, camping, bicycling, downhill skiing, cross-country skiing, and picnicking."
