Branbury State Park to Burlington, Vermont.

Vermont’s Green Mountains, has over 40 family-friendly campsites and lean-tos that are a quick walk from the beachfront of Lake Dunmore. Head north on Route 116 along the western edge of the Greens. Follow the highway east into the mountains and to the idyllic town of Bristol for a maple soft-serve at the Village Creeme Stand. Continue east through Lincoln along River/Lincoln Gap Road, then pull over where the Long Trail—the oldest through-hiking route in the U.S., and part of the Appalachian Trail—­intersects with the road. Hike it to the top of Mount Abe, one of the state’s five 4,000-foot peaks; the rocky summit pokes above the timberline and offers stunning 360-degree views that span from the Adirondacks in the west to New Hampshire’s White Mountains in the east. Drive to the quaint town of Warren, order the Number Six sandwich to go at the Warren Store, and eat it on the banks of the Mad River. Your final stop? Vermont’s largest city, Burlington. Lake Champlain before popping in for a dry-ale-style cider at Citizen Cider.

Idyllic scenery, indeed! Lovely time to be there, especially for all the Fall colors! Great place for a nice bike cruise, as well, especially on that cool scooter!
Always a treat, my friend!!
