Looking for a scenic alternative to Route 100 this foliage season? Stowe Hollow Road will not disappoint.
Located east of Route 100 between Waterbury Center and Stowe, Stowe Hollow Road winds through a gorgeous, mostly local residential area where you’ll find rolling hills, barns, ponds, and some lovely views of the Green Mountains. One of the prettiest spots to stop along the way is at Grandview Barn, which is part of a 65-acre farm protected from development through the Stowe Land Trust.
Dave and I drove to Stowe Mountain Resort over the weekend by way of Stowe Hollow Road. The leaves are just starting to change in Stowe and across Vermont, so the next couple of weeks will be a perfect time to explore this magnificent, scenic route.
**If You Go: From Route 100 in Waterbury Center, take Guptil Road or Howard Avenue to Maple Street (east of the Waterbury Center Grange Hall). Stowe Hollow Road begins after you cross the Stowe town line.
