USA: Vermont: Manchester, Scenic Route 100, Stowe
Scenic Route 100, Vermont, USA: Fall foliage lovers’ paradise
by Prakash Bang, Editor in Chief
Two hundred miles of sheer beauty! That's the best way to describe Vermont's constantly changing views on Scenic Route 100, which runs from just south of Wilmington, Vermont, to Lake Memphremagog just short of the Canadian border.
There are many entry and exit points all along the route. I did about 100 miles of this scenic route beginning my journey from Stowe and leaving the route at Manchester. There were some detours en route to enable me to visit few of the attractions on the way. In fact there are many but I had to contain my temptation as I was on a schedule. If I had the choice, I could have spent days on just this route alone!
I was on a 7-day visit to explore fall foliage in the New England States of the USA. The State of Vermont has its fair share of picturesque landscape. The Scenic Route 100 is one such road that visitors must follow, especially in the month of October when the fall foliage is at its peak.
After a wholesome breakfast with Sam Trapp at the Trapp Family Lodge, I departed at 8AM. My first official stop was at Killington. En route I had many unofficial stops to photograph and soak in the beauty of the colourful landscape. The route has art galleries, covered bridges and scenic vistas all along.
Killington is home to the famous gondola ride which takes off from Killington Mountain Resort K1 base. You must not miss this trip up during the fall foliage. Views from top are simply mind blowing. I spent a couple of hours enjoying my return trip to the top and back (one-way tickets are also available for bikers and hikers).
My journey continued via Weston, a pretty town and home to the famous Vermont Country Store. After a quick bite, I drove towards Manchester to visit Hildene – the Lincoln Family Home. That was it.
My home that night was at Arlington Inn in Arlington.
