Very cool view on a clear day

I wouldn't make a special trip to go see this, but if you are driving on Route 9 then it's definitely worth stopping for a nice view.

We traveled over "hogsback Mountain" and through the Molly Stark trails. It appeared to be peak season for fall foliage. Absolutely gorgeous. There are no words to describe the "beauty of God" that we saw.

We passed this place on the way into Wilmington, but stopped in on Sunday on the way back to logan airport to meet other family members coming up to stay. went back Monday to get some that amazing smoked vermont cheddar cheese, so we could fire up the barbeque. hans down the best cheese i've ever had.

Not hard to get to, and a great view on a clear day. Right off route 9. Has a gift shop, and a museum also. Try the Vermont maple cream liqueur. Delish.

We stopped here on our way to Mt Snow. The view was pretty and the fudge from the store was delicious.

Nice overlook, you can literally see for about 50 miles. The store at the overlook has Vermont Wine and Cheese and a musuem. No need to spend more than 2 hours unless you brought your own picnic basket and want to sit on the overlook and enjoy brunch. Nice place, we enjoyed it

Stop and look! On a clear day you can see New Hampshire's Mt. Monadnock and beyond. In the fall, the colors create a multicolored carpet. In all seasons, you get a spectacular view.
