The Crossroad of Vermont Byway is an east-west roadway of US Route 4 that literally crosses the state’s Green Mountains from Rutland to Hartford, offering the visitor a unique glimpse into the many qualities that define Vermont as one of the most beautiful states in the country. There is the charm that a traveler expects when passing through Vermont towns, and the scenic and natural qualities that enhance that experience.
Our Byway includes the quaint New England towns/villages of Hartland, Quechee and Woodstock, major mountain recreation in Killington and Mendon, hundreds of scenic views along the Ottauquechee River and the spine of the Green Mountains, many examples of the state’s industrial history in marble and milling in Bridgewater, Rutland City and Rutland Town, West Rutland, and more. A rich history exists along our Byway. History buffs will experience customary early New England Style architecture and can witness a way of life enjoyed in our small communities. The marble, railroad and agricultural industries were significant in the establishment of the communities and continue their operations today.
Recreational resources abound all along the Byway, for both the most active or more passive traveler. Enjoy a concert under a gazebo, picnic next to a mountain stream or, hike the Appalachian Trail, ski, bike ride or golf. Something can be found for everyone during any one of our four beautiful seasons. With so much of Vermont captured on the Crossroad of Vermont Byway, this unique 50-mile roadway provides the traveler the ease to experience that which truly represent a microcosm of Vermont.
