We had never been here. Directions easy. Nice road to travel. Beautiful fall foliage. Places to stop and do short walks.

Laura and I have stopped here in the fall 4 times and always are amazed at the beauty of this road, especially when you near the top of the gap. Also, there is a beautiful fairly moderate hike to sunset ledge. Not too long, with a gorgeous view of the Champlain valley. This year we mistakenly took the hike to Mt. Abraham, which ascends over 1800 feet, very rocky, 2.7 miles one way. Although the view at the summit was great, it was too demanding for us.... took us 5 hours( we are in our 70's). The sunset hike would have been a 2 hour hike and the view there is just as good.

The Lincoln Gap road is a 25 percent grade, so very steep, bit worth going up to get access to a few of the trail heads on the old Long Trail, which is older than the Appalachian Trail. We went up the Lincoln Gap Road and took the South route on the Long Trail up to Sunset Ledge, a nice one hour round trip hike with great views.

There are lots of scenic roads in Vermont. A few offer impressive views...and can be crowded. Lincoln Gap Road offers lovely views AND is rarely overcrowded! Open seasonally during summer, and usually closed after the first October snows, Lincoln Gap road is accessible from either the western side in Lincoln, VT, OR from the eastern side just south of Warren, off route 100. At it's top (of the pass) there's access to the Long Trail ("Sunset Ledge Trail Head"); two parking lots, on either side of the top of the pass, about 100 yards apart offer what is usually ample parking. The road is fully paved, although there can be rough spots/pot holes in the pavement and there are some sharp hair-pin turns. The road peaks around an elevation of 2,460 feet, and the best vista is from the western parking lot. Handicapped folks can enjoy the view, the lot is paved and therefore folks on walkers and wheelchairs can enjoy it. On cooler days, you might need some wind protection; on hotter summer days, it's almost 1500 feet above main roads, so it's often 6-8 degrees cooler than down below! For the adventurous, you can hike in on the Long Trail. Just be sure to bring water and food. We hiked a touch south, maybe 300-400 yards down along the spine of the Green Mountains, and found some view points along the Long Trail. There are NO rest rooms or services of any kind available at either parking lot. Pleid Lake, Vermont's highest lake road circuit: As an alternative, you can drive ONE way over Lincoln pass, then head south to Middlebury (Route 7) or Hancock (Route 100) and take Route 125 so as to drive a loop. If you drive from the junction of Lincoln Gap road and 100 South, you'll pass through Granville Notch and Moss Glen Falls; in Hancock, drive WEST over the pass of route 125. Right at Middlebury Gap is a trail to Pleid Lake, Vermont's highest lake. You are guaranteed to really refresh yourself swimming here on a hot summer's day. As you hike to the lake, you'll walk on/across Middlebury Snow Bowl ski trails. Complete your circuit by driving north on Route 7, (or the less crowded Route 116) into and through Bristol...where there is a nice selection of toney eateries, etc., to grab a lovely meal!

We drove through in late September without a plan or a worry, we say a turn in Warren and took the chance that it might be the causal fun drive we were looking for...and indeed it was. Although the road is not paved in many sections, and some of the paving needs some help, it's not a concern if you are there for the bucolic nature and enjoyment of driving through nature. Take the ride, take your time, and enjoy
