Route 100: Granville Gulf Reservation

Route 100: Granville Gulf Reservation

route 100 waterfall

Vermont’s Route 100 winds through small towns and scenic villages in the heart of the Green Mountains. When you drive along this famous Vermont road, you come across white steepled churches, cozy ski towns and country stores.
One of the most unique areas of Route 100 is Granville Gulf Reservation, a remote, six-mile stretch of road between Granville and Warren. The area’s most popular attraction is Moss Glen Falls, a stunning waterfall.
The May issue of Smithsonian magazine includes an in-depth travel feature about Route 100, and mentions some impressive tidbits about Granville Gulf Reservation.
Here’s an interesting fact I learned from the Smithsonian article: most of the reservation’s 1,171-acres were donated in 1927 to the state by former Vermont Governor Redfield Proctor, Jr., who stipulated that the land be forever protected and preserved. What a gift.
Happy Earth Day!

    I always visit Moss Glen Falls whenever I go to Vermont… it’s been a favorite spot since I was a youngster … I’ve taken many friends there as well, when I play ‘guide’ for visitors from the midwest! Larry

    Hi Larry — The falls are wonderful. What a nice place to show your friends from the midwest. It’s definitely one of my favorite places in VT, too.
