General Information

Description - The beautiful state of Vermont offers three state designated byways: Route 108 The Smuggler's Notch Road, Route 125 The Middlebury Gap Road and Route 131 Cavendish Road. The Smuggler`s Notch Road passes through the area of the Mansfield State Forest, which has rock climbing and hiking. The Middlebury Gap Road passes through the Green Mountain National Forest, where outdoor recreation activities are popular. The Cavendish Road runs through the town of Cavendish, along the Black River.

Recreation - Byways provide access to numerous cultural, historical, natural, recreational and scenic sites. Some of the most popular activities along the byways include hiking, camping, picnicking, biking, fishing, photographing scenery, viewing historic sites and of course scenic driving.

Climate - Vermont's climate varies somewhat depending on region. Generally, the state experiences mild summers with temperatures rarely reaching 90 degrees F. Often summer lows will dip to 50 degrees and by late August temperatures begin to cool. Signs of spring are evident in the Champlain Valley by late March, although the high country begins mud season at this time and doesn't get a full thaw until late April. The mountainous regions of the state have seen snow fall in every month, so be prepared for cooler temperatures if staying in those areas.

Winters can be harsh and long in this northern state. Snow is likely to fall anytime between September and April. Humidity makes winter weather seem bitter and usually a few weeks during the winter see night time temperature below zero. The average winter temperature is 20 degrees F with highs reaching into the forties on warm days.

Location - Byways travel through scenic and historic areas throughout the state.
