Even if one doesn't like heights, one can take the gondola to the top of Mount Mansfield in Stowe Vermont without hesitation. It is a completely enclosed car but offers a 360 degree view of the fantastic autumn colors of the surrounding mountains.Extreme leaf peeping!

On a nice crisp morning what a fun thing to do. A gentleman at the base mentioned we may be a bit cold @ the top. The gondola was so much fun and the color was awesome. So happy we went there!

My husband and I drove to the top of the Toll Road and what a great sight! It was a bit disappointing that the visitors center at the top seemed to be abandoned, especially since you have to pay to drive up the mountain, but over all, it was great. We also got out and went on foot most of... More

We enjoyed our time on the mountain so much we chose not just to ride the cable car but also to drive up the toll road to the top. Both offer stunning views over miles and miles of countryside and delightful mountain trails. A must do!!

The long trail up was a good scramble to the top but so was the scramble down to the gondola. The views were fantastic but we were surprised to see families with small kids and people in sandals who had come up on the gondola struggling to get up (and presumably back down) from the gondola to the summit pass....

We hiked the long trail (south) up the mountain (wasnt easy, they ranked it as moderate but again it had some hard spots). Amazing hike, I love climbing up streams and the views from the top. it instantly became one of my favorite spots

Great value ($4 per car), includes an audio CD and sticker. The views are fantastic. There is a docent at the top , to help with directions. Easy hike with great views of four states.

We considered taking the gondola, but in the end, took the toll road - which I was pretty apprehensive about as I'm generally afraid of falling down mountains. The bulk of the drive wasn't all that scary, save for the fact that our rental car didn't have the best traction and almost didn't make it when we had to stop... More

The view from the top of Mount Mansfield is precious, but the cost of driving up is very steep: $19 per vehicle and extra for each additional passenger aside from the driver. The hike along the rock ridge at the top is fantastic and affords beautiful views of the valley below.

Good cable car ride up Mount Mansfield (and back). Some hike up and ride down, others vice-versa. We rode up and down again, being lazy!
