This is an exciting trek up to the top of the mountain! You must go slowly, watch the edge of the road and use lower gears on the way down. You WILL have amazing scenery and spectacular photos.

This is worth every penny. It is a stunning drive both up and down the mountain. The views, even on a rainy day, are amazing. Must do in Stowe.

Extraordinary views over VT, NY and Canada with blue skies and fantastic autumn colours. Wouldn't have missed it. Drive not too bad at all. Parking could be problematic. Great easy trails to see the views.

Great way to see the colors and take in the beautiful vistas in the comfort of your car. Small price to pay for the toll road which winds around the mountain allowing you to stop as desired to take photos.

My family is visiting this area Oct 17-20th. However, I noticed that on the website it says the "season" is May 20th-Oct 16th. Does this mean Smuggles Notch is shut down & no visitors are allowed the 16th??? Also the Stowe Mountain Auto Road has the same "season" May 20-Oct 16th, is that also closed after the 16th?
