Jeffersonville, Johnson & Hyde Park

42.2 miles long

This is a trip through Smugglers' Notch from the south to north, which is probably the most scenic approach. This trip follows the course of the annual Stowe Bike Race, and Olympic development race of 90 miles duration, which includes two grueling rides through the Notch.

Just on the left in Jeffersonville, as you turn onto Route 15, is a War Memorial which we think you will find is an imaginative and charming alternate to monolithic statutes, old field pieces or piles of cannon balls. Thence you drive up the Valley of the Lamoille, the River of the Gull, as the French named it. Just under a mile out of Jeffersonville, there is a side road to the left with a fine covered bridge over the river and another to the right carrying the railroad across.

At Johnson there is Johnson Woolen Mills to visit. As you leave Hyde Park, watch for the one way wooden "Dry Bridge".
