I haven't driven up there in years but on a nice day it is a must do. At the top Of the road you can hike up to the top of Mt. Mansfield. Not a hard hike but definitely wear hiking shoes. A 360 view at the top. Breathtaking!

If you're visiting Stowe, this toll road drive to the the top of Mount Mansfield is SO worth it! You pay a small fee at the bottom of the hill, then start your drive. It's a couple miles long and going down is a but scarier than going up - but once you get to the top you can hike... More

This is an exciting trek up to the top of the mountain! You must go slowly, watch the edge of the road and use lower gears on the way down. You WILL have amazing scenery and spectacular photos.

This is a narrow toll road up to the top of Mt Mansfield. It is mostly dirt but well packed and suitable for automobiles, although we went up in a Jeep. Once you get to the parking area, it is a short hike up to the ridge and then a relatively easy hike to the summit. The only reason I... More

Scared drive. Thank goodness my husband was driving. But beautiful views of the fall foliage and surrounding mountain ranges.

This is worth every penny. It is a stunning drive both up and down the mountain. The views, even on a rainy day, are amazing. Must do in Stowe.

Extraordinary views over VT, NY and Canada with blue skies and fantastic autumn colours. Wouldn't have missed it. Drive not too bad at all. Parking could be problematic. Great easy trails to see the views.

Great way to see the colors and take in the beautiful vistas in the comfort of your car. Small price to pay for the toll road which winds around the mountain allowing you to stop as desired to take photos.

Would recommend this for access to a great trail to the summit/chin of Mt Mansfield. The cost is worth it; the folks in the booth are great with questions; an audio cd is included in the price which gives background on the trail.

Once you get to the top and navigate the trail the views of Vermont and Canada are amazing. Make sure to bring a camera and some water. The drive is on gravel for 95% of the time and as long as you go slow everything will be fine.
