Magnificent Maples

Lyndonville, VT

[ Get Directions ]

The views and vistas along Darling Hill Road - the main event of this ride - are unsurpassed. Century-old sugar maples form a canopy of color during foliage season and respite from the sun in the spring and summer. Perfect for all abilities. Don't be deterred by the hill out of East Burke; you'll be amply awarded for your efforts! Even skinny tired bikes can handle the unpaved roadway near the Inn at Mountain View and the Wildflower Inn.

Directions: Departing from Lyndonville, ride north on US Rt 5, right on Rt 114 and left on East Darling Hill Road in East Burke. At the top of the hill, turn left on Darling Hill Road, which becomes unpaved in 0.4 mile and remains unpaved for 1.7 miles. Turn right on to Rt 114 and left on Rt 5 back to Lyndonville.
