Take Route 7A from Bennington to Manchester. Take a detour in Arlington on 313 (west) along the Battenkill to the Arlington Green Covered Bridge. Just above Arlington on 7A is Mount Equinox Skyline Drive. In Manchester Center take a left onto Route 30 to the lovely village of Dorset with the inn, general store and old building set on the small green.

I would continue that drive up 30 through the Mettawee valley. You can take 315 over to Rupert or go up 30 to 113 to Middletown Springs and loop back on 30 past lake St. Catherine.

You could also take 30 east out of Manchester up past Bromley Ski area to Peru, Londonderry and Weston

It's Vermont! Pretty much all is scenic. Not sure if the lifts to top of Bromley or Stratton are running but if are, take the ride. Also, Stratton has trails to hike. Much more fun than watching leaves thru window. With that being said, I love visiting weston, country store and hanging on the village green.

Finding a non-scenic drive would be very difficult.

A good 'destination ride' would be go go to Brattleboro but take the long way by going South to Bennington then Rt. 9 East. Then on the way back pick up 100 off 9 in Wilmington.

Brat would be a good place to stop for lunch or whatever and rt. 9 is scenic especially the top where it goes over Hogback mountain. And 100 on the way back is also really nice so you wouldn't just be seeing the same coming back.
