A very scenic ride along the valley base of Mt. Mansfield - the highest mtn in VT and basis for ski resorts on both sides. After a rolling 7 miles along lower and upper pleasant valley roads (with constant views of the looming mountains) you hit the town of Jeffersonville and start climbing toward the Smuggler’s notch ski resort. You climb for 1 mile then its false flat (about 2 miles) until a turn on a side road and more climbing to a lake and perfect view of the slopes on the mountain. You want to do the full climb through the notch at the top of the mountain? No problem - that is the Smuggler’s notch mountain video!
