What a nice drive, with beautiful scenery, plenty of places to stop along the way, and a great chance to see so much of southern Vermont, and the great people who live there. Wonderful drive!

This is a very scenic trail during fall foliage. We chose to do it because it was a rainy day and couldn't hike. Beautiful!!

My husband and I drove headed towards Bennington. Nice drive. Stopped at the Hogback overlook. Really took our time and enjoyed the stop. Loved the gift shop. Best prices on the maple products that we had seen in the area.

This was a beautiful and historic routing. Glad we took this road and stopped at the scenic lookout at Hogback Mountain. Whoever is responsible for the overlook needs to replace boards before someone leans on the railing and takes a tumble over the edge!

We drove from Wilmington to Bennington through this road and saw many trees and nice hilltops. I enjoyed the scenery while my husband was driving. I recommend this leisurely drive for those who like to travel slow.

We took this drive on the way to Bennington. Lots of photo ops and very pretty color. Can be slow in places but there are numerous "truck lanes" for the speedsters. Some nice pull off areas and some backroads to explore,

A great roadway with pretty much all new pavement from outside Bennington well into New Hampshire, with absolutely gorgeous colors and scenery the week of 9/23/14.

I love traveling the roads of Vermont on 2 wheels. This road does not disappoint. Travel route 7A if you get the chance through the small towns. Traffic was light on a Friday and I can't wait to return.

For a great trip through the Vermont Mountains you have to take this trail. The drive is great especially on a sunny afternoon. Stop at the Hog Back gift shop for a great view and some great buys.
