    Enjoy a scenic tour through the countryside of Waitsfield and Warren with a visit to Moss Glen Falls south of Warren (not the one in Stowe). Turn around at the falls for a 35 mile (M) ride or continue up Middlebury Gap with a stop at Texas Falls before turning around for a 60 mile (M/S) ride.  A stop at the Warren Store is always popular and the general store in Hancock provides an additional respite for those on the long ride.
