Jon’s New York to Killington
Short Cut

 

!!! Important Please Read !!!
I prefer to take the back roads. This trip is not for everyone.
If you just like to get on a major highway and drive at a higher rate of speed
then don’t take this route, if you have GRP (Guard Rail Paranoia), it’s not for you!
This trip will take you on 2 & 4 lane roads only but it is about the shortest possible
mileage between New York City and Killington Vermont.

Updated March 8, 2004 to reflect the new Vermont RT 279
