Found the Molly Stark Trail by complete chance when looking for something to do for a day drive. Trail has many places to stop and take in the scenery and sights! Hogback Mountain was very pretty!

Took this route from Bennington VT... About 1-1/2 hours to Brattleboro. Nice scenery and small towns along the way. It was raining that day so we didn't get much of a chance to get outside...still very nice ride.

Scenic and Historical. Be sure to stop in Wilmington to see statue of Molly Stark - quite interesting. And stop at Hogback Mountain for great views as well as pick up some Vermont Distillery "specials!"

This is a very pretty route with mountains and rivers on each side. If you stop at Hogback Mountain, you get incredible views.
