We drove from Wilmington to Bennington through this road and saw many trees and nice hilltops. I enjoyed the scenery while my husband was driving. I recommend this leisurely drive for those who like to travel slow.

We took this drive on the way to Bennington. Lots of photo ops and very pretty color. Can be slow in places but there are numerous "truck lanes" for the speedsters. Some nice pull off areas and some backroads to explore,

A great roadway with pretty much all new pavement from outside Bennington well into New Hampshire, with absolutely gorgeous colors and scenery the week of 9/23/14.

I love traveling the roads of Vermont on 2 wheels. This road does not disappoint. Travel route 7A if you get the chance through the small towns. Traffic was light on a Friday and I can't wait to return.

For a great trip through the Vermont Mountains you have to take this trail. The drive is great especially on a sunny afternoon. Stop at the Hog Back gift shop for a great view and some great buys.

This wasn't the fall leaf season. The views were okay, but not spectacular. We're not sure what the people saw, who rave about it. It's similar to a drive in the Catskill mountains in NY -- green mountains, streams, lakes (and an occasional statue of...More

I guess I was two weeks late this year for foliage on Oct. 19. It has Moose crossings but I didn't see any Moose. Still we enjoyed the drive and the road was not crowded.

Great scenery! Worth the trip! Would be gorgeous drive in the fall! Hope to return to see the foliage,

0.8 mile trail to the fire tower which is quite vertical. If hot and/or humid: be warned, you will be soaked. The view is spectacular. Park is very clean and well maintained.
