A scenic ride on ridge tops, past lakes and villages, and through deep, green valleys along a famous and ancient military road. Designed by Jesse Pacht, lead guide and local expert.
Join us for a scenic ride along this famous northern Vermont military road. You’ll ride across ridge tops, past lakes and villages, and through deep, green valleys. Along the way, your guides will entertain and inform you about the amazing story behind the ancient Bayley-Hazen Military Road. There are plenty of monuments, markers, cemeteries and picture opportunities along this route. Just before lunch, you’ll ride over the Hazen Notch Road winding through Hazen State Forest. If this road could talk…
Lunch will be at a rustic inn and lodge in Montgomery, VT.
This easy route is 50/50 paved/dirt roads, suitable for 2-up, 90/10 tires suitable for riding on well maintained dirt and gravel roads. There is one short section of possibly muddy and rocky road that is easily bypassed and one short, loose decline.
OPTION FOR EXPERIENCED RIDERS: There is an OPTIONAL small “challenge section only” for experienced riders with proper gear; we will be sending out a small “challenge section only” group that will tackle the often-photographed, rocky Class 4 section of the B-H. Admittance to this optional section will be determined by the ride leader.
