Amazing fall foliage and great hiking spot.
paź 2019
Laura and I have stopped here in the fall 4 times and always are amazed at the beauty of this road, especially when you near the top of the gap. Also, there is a beautiful fairly moderate hike to sunset ledge. Not too long, with a gorgeous view of the Champlain valley. This year we mistakenly took the hike to Mt. Abraham, which ascends over 1800 feet, very rocky, 2.7 miles one way. Although the view at the summit was great, it was too demanding for us.... took us 5 hours( we are in our 70's). The sunset hike would have been a 2 hour hike and the view there is just as good.

Steep Road But Scenic and Worth the Climb
wrz 2019 • Pary
The Lincoln Gap road is a 25 percent grade, so very steep, bit worth going up to get access to a few of the trail heads on the old Long Trail, which is older than the Appalachian Trail.

We went up the Lincoln Gap Road and took the South route on the Long Trail up to Sunset Ledge, a nice one hour round trip hike with great views.

Lovely views and rarely crowded!
sie 2017 • Znajomi
There are lots of scenic roads in Vermont. A few offer impressive views...and can be crowded. Lincoln Gap Road offers lovely views AND is rarely overcrowded!

Open seasonally during summer, and usually closed after the first October snows, Lincoln Gap road is accessible from either the western side in Lincoln, VT, OR from the eastern side just south of Warren, off route 100.

At it's top (of the pass) there's access to the Long Trail ("Sunset Ledge Trail Head"); two parking lots, on either side of the top of the pass, about 100 yards apart offer what is usually ample parking. The road is fully paved, although there can be rough spots/pot holes in the pavement and there are some sharp hair-pin turns. The road peaks around an elevation of 2,460 feet, and the best vista is from the western parking lot. Handicapped folks can enjoy the view, the lot is paved and therefore folks on walkers and wheelchairs can enjoy it.

On cooler days, you might need some wind protection; on hotter summer days, it's almost 1500 feet above main roads, so it's often 6-8 degrees cooler than down below!

For the adventurous, you can hike in on the Long Trail. Just be sure to bring water and food. We hiked a touch south, maybe 300-400 yards down along the spine of the Green Mountains, and found some view points along the Long Trail.

There are NO rest rooms or services of any kind available at either parking lot.

Pleid Lake, Vermont's highest lake road circuit: As an alternative, you can drive ONE way over Lincoln pass, then head south to Middlebury (Route 7) or Hancock (Route 100) and take Route 125 so as to drive a loop. If you drive from the junction of Lincoln Gap road and 100 South, you'll pass through Granville Notch and Moss Glen Falls; in Hancock, drive WEST over the pass of route 125. Right at Middlebury Gap is a trail to Pleid Lake, Vermont's highest lake. You are guaranteed to really refresh yourself swimming here on a hot summer's day. As you hike to the lake, you'll walk on/across Middlebury Snow Bowl ski trails. Complete your circuit by driving north on Route 7, (or the less crowded Route 116) into and through Bristol...where there is a nice selection of toney eateries, etc., to grab a lovely meal!

A wonderful winding road thru the Green Mountains
wrz 2017 • Pary
We drove through in late September without a plan or a worry, we say a turn in Warren and took the chance that it might be the causal fun drive we were looking for...and indeed it was. Although the road is not paved in many sections, and some of the paving needs some help, it's not a concern if you are there for the bucolic nature and enjoyment of driving through nature. Take the ride, take your time, and enjoy

Mile long 22-25% grade through winding road - very special drive. I went from Warren to Lincoln, stayed in Lincoln, which is a wonderful little town.

Canopy of trees escort you on your drive.
paź 2015
Got the information about Lincoln Gap Road from New England Fall Foliage on Facebook. There were spotters who were reporting where fall colors were. The road does go from paved to unpaved (but not bad) at times and you do have to be careful of grooves in the road (I assume from snow plows??? I don't know). It is a beautiful drive and the canopy of trees as you drive through is beautiful. I wish there was more color when I went through, but it is worth the drive. Stop in Warren, VT at the end. They have a cute general store where you can buy lunch, gifts, pastries, etc.

Cyclist beware.....much discomfort with this climb!!
wrz 2015 • Znajomi
I did Lincoln and App gap today, and while I look forward to it again, I'll bring a lower gear. It tips up to about 20pct and stays there. No matter how much wishing there is no mercy in this climb...loved every leg wrenching inch of it! The decent is quick with sharp turns then turns to dirt. Be careful not to overcook the corners!

I used a mid compact with 28cassette on the back....a 32 would be better...

Nice mountain pass
maj 2013 • Wyjazd w pojedynkę
Just make sure vehicle will stay cool enough going up a challenging hill and your brakes are in good shape for the ride down the other side. Note- this road is closed in the winter, by early May it still had closed signs to the Warren side, but there were plenty of drivers. More houses than I remember going up the Lincoln side from a few years ago, but that is pretty typical of VT development. There are only a few places to pull over for views and pictures, but the twisting ride up the mountain going from dirt to pavement and back to dirt makes for a fun experience. Parking access to the trail was adequate, not sure about a busy summer weekend.

A hidden backroad gem...
wrz 2012 • Znajomi
Lincoln Gap is a beautiful, twisting, steep, and slow-paced backroad gem right in the heart of the Green Mountains. Easy access from Route 100 in Warren or Route 116/17 in Bristol. Some parts of the road are still dirt, which makes it that much more charming. Parking is available at the top of The Gap with access to the Long Trail.

The town on Lincoln (on the west side) is a great little classic Vermont town with a general store, picture perfect white church, and a babbling mountain river that hugs much of the road. Postcards of Vermont look like this little town.

Lots of beautiful old farmhouses amd great barns around every corner, as well as many sweeping vistas off some of the side roads. (Particularly nice is the view towards Lincoln Gap & Mount Abraham from several spots on West Hill Road. Venture up Quaker Street, past where it turns from blacktop to dirt by about 1/2 mile and there are more sweeping views of Mt. Abraham in all her glory. There is also a monument to early Quaker settlers in this area.

Be sure to stop by the general store for delicious wraps, soups, and simple sandwiches. There are often homemade baked goods available as well.

Travel Lincoln Gap on the Saturday of Memorial Day Weekend, and you will be treated to Lincoln's Town Wide Yard Sale. Maps showing where the sales are located can be found at the General Store and flea market on the lawn of the town hall. Usually 40 to 50 sales dotted throughout the town -- it's a great way to explore roads that you might generally drive right by! Plus this town has TREASURES GALORE in its attics, garages, and junk rooms!

During summer, there are several great swimming holes in the New Haven River - bring your swim trunks and towel!

So be sure to drive Lincoln Gap, but also enjoy the town of Lincoln and its friendly Vermonters.
