The Green Mountain Byway is a Scenic Byway designated by the State of Vermont. The Byway travels through the towns of Waterbury and Stowe, Vermont, between the spine of the northern Green Mountains to the west and the peaks of the Worcester Range to the east.

From south to north, the route is 14.5 miles long on VT Route 100, a multifaceted highway that serves as the gateway to Waterbury and Stowe and their historic bustling village centers. Along the Byway there are many opportunities to enjoy the area’s rich cultural history, natural beauty, and recreational opportunities.

The Vermont Byways Program defines a byway as:

a highway or other public road that may be associated with other transportation resources that have special scenic, historic, recreational, cultural, archeological and/or natural qualities, and that has been formally designated by the Vermont Transportation Board. A Vermont Byway can be designated and managed with a focus on any or all of these six qualities. A wide range of road types are included: village streets, country lanes, gravel roads in the Green Mountain National Forest, State roads, and Interstate Highways.
