We planned this for a beautiful sunny day to make it worth the price ($33 for car, drive, and 1 passenger). We arrived the Toll gate at 10:36 a.m. on the Friday of Columbus Day holiday weekend. There were 7 cars ahead of us in...More

The top was socked in but the folks taking money said there were other viewpoints that had great views. They didn't try to talk me into still going up, and were clear that the very top was cloudy. I went up anyway but didn't think...More

We looked forward to doing this road as the leaves where changing. It does not offer the expansive views I had hoped for. It still is a nice trip although overpirced in my opinion. Road is in fair/good condition and mostly gravel.

The road is mostly gravel with some rocks 3 inches in diameter. Must be careful at hair pin turns if someone coming in opposite direction. Not a scary drive like Mt Washington. At top, a 10 minute easy walk brings you to a great view...More

We did not go on the Toll Road as it was too expensive considering we were driving our own car up the mountain with the driver and three passengers.

We took the toll road up the mountain and then hiked the 1.4 miles along the ridgeline to the summit. It was a rocky hike and windy. My 6 and 8 year olds loved it, though they were a little worn out on the way...More

When I saw that it was $24 to access the road plus $9 for each additional person I thought "Yeah right." However, we spent several hours up there hiking along the windy ridge of Mount Mansfield and taking photos, and it was absolutely worth it....More
