Green Mountain Byway

Vermont's Route 100 bisects the state from top to bottom, following river valleys, alongside the peaks of the Green Mountains. This scenic route starts at the southern border at one of Vermont's oldest cities, Wilmington (chartered in 1750). Heading northward, the highway passes two state parks, Townsend and Jamaica. The West River at Jamaica attracts whitewater enthusiasts. Hamilton Falls is another scenic wonder as Cobb Creek drops over 125 feet over granite ledges. Next up is the picturesque town of Weston, where historic buildings recall a bygone era before electric power. Just north of Gifford Woods State Park and Stockbridge, the two lane highway winds along the White River.
