VT High Gaps
Your Ride: The VT High Gaps Unguided Ride takes you into the heart of Vermont's Green Mountain range, home to some legendary mountain gap roads, and some known only by locals. It's an eternal Americade favorite ride, and one that you'll be glad you took (beware, call your doctor if your grin lasts more than 4 hours...) The morning begins with a ride along the shores of Lake George as you head north and east to Vermont. Among the many sights you'll see before you enter Vermont will be many stunning lake views of Lake George, some fabulous winding roads, and scenic historic sights. You'll head up and over a great bridge, so have your cameras ready for the stunning views of NY's Adirondacks and Vermont's Green Mountains.
Once in Vermont, you'll ride through the pastoral lands that make Vermont famous, but the real jewels lie ahead - the mountain gaps. Vermont's mountain range runs north-to-south, so to head east/west, Vermonters had to build roads up and over the mountains. Some of these "gaps" are legendary (such as the "App Gap"), and some are less well known. This route takes you to the best. Get ready for twisty, winding, FUN roads. Your road home takes you through more of Vermont's beautiful farmland. It's a gentle ride back to Lake George that's camera ready and the perfect end to an exciting day of riding the Gaps.
