This ride is from Cycling the Kingdom by the Northeastern Vermont Development Association. “The views and vistas along Darling Hill Road — the main event of this ride — are unsurpassed. Century-old sugar maples form a canopy of color during foliage season and a respite from the sun in spring and summer. Perfect for all abilities. Don’t be deterred by the hill out of East Burke; you’ll be amply awarded for your efforts! Even skinny tired bikes can handle the unpaved roadway near the Inn at Mountain View Creamery and the Wildflower Inn.
