Georgia Park and Ride
Address: 2840 Skunk Hill Rd, Georgia, VT 05478, USA

Light, rolling hills with beautiful views by the lake. The 35-mile (E/M) route goes out to Kill Kare Park and returns while the 50-mile (M) route continues on to Swanton and back. Both rides can break for food at St. Albans Bay.

For those coming from the Burlington area, we suggest carpooling at the Colchester Park and Ride at Exit 17 off I-89 or perhaps meeting at UVM or Veterans Memorial Park in South Burlington.

Please confirm with Donna or Karla if you are planning on the Social Ride version of this ride.

    This rolling hill ride (60 M/S) passes through Georgia and Milton before heading to St. Albans Bay for a break by the bay and over to Swanton. The shorter version (40 M) turns around after the break stop. This ride has a short stretch along the shore of the Lamoille River and a longer stretch along Lake Champlain. There is only one store on the ride and it is at the point where the two rides separate.
