Note: Vermont's landscape is characterized by constant rises and valleys, and the continuously rolling terrain can make routes feel more challenging than the mileage may suggest. Also, the roads in Stowe and areas of Quebec can see higher traffic volume, and we may encounter occasional patches of rough pavement in Vermont.
