Good hike to the summit

The drive up was okay. The hike to the summit is worth it, but we recommend water and snacks. Just the drive isn't that great. The audio CD is a great guide.

The toll road goes up the mountain so you can see some of the fantastic views. Because it is a stone.dirt road in many spots it can get a little scary. We all took the ride and enjoyed a snak at the cliff house. Try it.

We took my parents up to the top of Mt Mansfield via the Toll Road which was a safer route up for them. Great hiking at the top and we stopped for a delicious flatbread duck confit sandwich at the Octagon Cafe at the top with marvelous views.

I didn't want to buy the mountain road, I just wanted to drive on it one time. They must be kidding to charge $19 for the car and driver and then have the nerve to charge an additional $6 for each additional passenger. The views from the top (4.5 miles uphill) are great and there are some nice trails to... More

A plesant fall surprise. We had an overnight in Stowe in effort to become official "leaf peepers" and took the car up this road. Saw deer, moose, a number of birds. Great vistas of the surrounding mountains and lakes. Take your time on the drive up and down the road. it's worth the extra time, plus it's just plain safer... More

We took the toll road up to the highest parking lot. You can park at the first lot, it will just be a little higher hike to the top. On the way up we saw a black bear which was pretty cool. From the top parking area it is a 1.4 mile trek to the chin which is the highest... More

It's a bit of slow hard drive, but well worth the trip. Our hotel gave us a 20% off coupon so it only cost $20. The views are amazing and on a clear day you can see forever.

This was an awesome experience but the price was steeper than the mountain. If I remember correctly, car +2 passengers were $19, then add an additional $6 for each extra passenger.
