Western Maine to Southern Adirondacks Route help needed??
« on: July 17, 2010, 07:43:25 am »
Planning one week trip from South Paris, ME to Pecks Lake, NY (West of Saratoga Springs {Fulton County}.  I'm set with the route thru NH via the Kancamagus -Linclon NH-Orford NH.  Most routes in Vermont that I have seen take a more North West path.  I need to go more West/south West from Orford.  Any suggestions?  Thanks, Jeff

A combination of the ACA Green Mountains and Adirondack loops is probably as good a route as any.  A section of the the Green Mountains loop goes through Piermont, East Thetford, South Royalton and Middlebury to Ticonderoga.  From Ticonderoga you can pick up the Adirondack loop which takes you through Lake Luzerne to
Broadalbin.   The ACA loops dips south through Saratoga Springs.  If you have no interest in passing through Saratoga, a nice alternative would be to follow the southern shore of Sacandaga Lake, appropriately called South Shore Rd, from the dam near Lake Luzerne to Broadalbin.

Hi -

For directness, from Oxford, NH get over to White River Junction/Lebanon (NH) and take Rte 4 across Vermont from East to West.  You will go through Quechee, then Rutland, and eventually, you will connect over in Fort Ann with Hwy 149 into Lake George.  From there, you can hop on Hwy 9 south to Saratoga Springs and so on.

This is about as direct as it gets.  Pretty hilly around Rutland as you go over the mountains.

Good Luck.
