    The route is mostly well maintained gravel with light traffic. There are several long climbs and some long fast descents. The scenery is great we will stop a few times at the best views. Caution is advised crossing Rte. 108 and descending Canyon, particularly when crossing the covered bridge where on a sunny day the transition from light to dark can be tricky. Also, the deck of the bridge has treads that should be taken slowly. VT gravel at its best.

    A cue sheet will be posted as soon as available. It is also available on the GMBC RWGPS maps.
