Green Mountain Byway
The Green Mountain 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. Traveling along the Byway provides stunning views of open meadows, farmland, and forests, all with a spectacular mountain backdrop. Historic homes, farmsteads, villages, mill sites, Waterbury Reservoir and three State Parks are accessible along the route as well as the area’s most prominent natural feature, Mount Mansfield, Vermont’s highest peak, which provides ample opportunities for recreation.
Explore the history of the Green Mountain Byway’s communities, learn more about four-season recreation activities, discover tastes from farms and local food producers, and take in breathtaking views of mountains, forests, farmland, waterfalls, and other natural sites.
