If you enjoy the beauties of nature, then this drive is for you. Be aware, this is a sometimes dirt, often bumpy road, so smaller cars will likely experience an uncomfortable ride. The “notch” is really just a pass through the hills, so there isn’t...More

If staying in Montgomery area, be sure and take this beatiful drive. Upper road is closed in winter. Look for the extensive maple sugar collection tubes on the way down!

Since we stayed a mere fifteen minutes away from Hazen’s Notch, we decided to visit the Notch on the way to Big Falls. The state route number is paved until, surprise, it turns to dirt. I kept saying Vermont’s state slogan should be: Vermont—Land of...More

Well maintained. Beautiful place. Bring your dog, but don't fish there....not allowed. Great hikes. Lots of Beavers, frogs, toads, salamanders! Go hike the mountain, but wear your hiking boots, you'll need them on your way back down. The views from the mountain are spectacular!

This is a very beautiful narrow winding road through the notch. beautiful farm country sides at each end of the notch before entering the higher elevations. Up in the notch, nice waterfalls and deep forest. Shady and cool even on the hottest days.

We enjoyed the well groomed trails in Hazen's Notch and the hike up to the summit with the 360 views of mountains all around must be amazing in fall.
