Rode Route 17 a couple weeks ago with a group...looking at your site for suggestions and saw it listed.
For a cruiser, or slow ride it wouldíve been a fine road, but the pavement is in terrible condition for any sort of spirited riding.
Corner entrances on the way down the mountain were especially bumpy.
If this road gets re-paved sometime soon, itíll be one of my favorites for sure.
Until then, Iíll mostly avoid it.

We rode it today and it is 'Epic'.
Beautiful, colorful, curvy and amongst the best.

I was on this road about a month ago.
The weather has taken its toll this past winter.
There were many frost heaves especially on the western sections that were not there last fall.
It's not as enjoyable as it used to be.

I happened across this road 9/10 during a trip to my brother's in Burlington from MD.
What a hoot!!!
If you like twisty roads, tight turns & some steep grades, you'll love this road.
New pavement adds to the pleasure.
Too bad it wasn't longer.
This was my reward after getting stuck in repaving traffic on Route 125.

We did this route west to east in the rain with a trailer in June, 2010.
We did it again last weekend west to east in the sun and no trailer.
Great road, great curves, and lots of fun.
If you do not watch the posted markers you could find yourself in over your head.
If you are going west to east be careful at the turn off.
There is another road just before 17 and many people turn up there by mistake.

Eastern 9 miles is the technical section.
Bristol is just a convenient landmark on the western side.
In places, steep and twisting, whether approached from east or west.
Be careful. This eats bikes, rockets and cruisers, alike.

It's great, you get the mountains and the country.

Great road without much traffic. Some real tight twisties.

Beautiful views of Mad River and SugarBush Ski Resort.
Long sweeping curves accompanied by tight twisties.
New road surface, excellent conditions.

Super awesome road thru the gap at Mad River Glen.
It's a MUST in Vermont!
- Vale Rossi (2/21/07)
I drive down from Montreal all the time for this beautiful stretch of twisties.
I find it more fun doing it from west to east.
Not a road for beginers because you can get in over your head easily on some of the hairpin turns.
A 10 out of 10.

Awsome awsome ride. Picnic table corner is great.
This is one amazing road.
Worth the trip up. I will do this again.
We just rode the first 10-15 miles of it.
Did it about 10 times back and forth. Fun, fun ride.

Use extreme caution.
Parts of this road thru Camels Hump State Park are like a mini Deals Gap.
Every now-and-then a semi will try and run this road, with interesting results.

#1 twisty in the state of Vermont.
You will lose chrome on an H-D on this one.
Nice break from the boredom of 100.

This road starts out as a very twisty mountain road with great views if you can take your eyes off the road!
Mid section is rolling hills and sweepers through farm country.
The last few miles to the bridge are long straights with great sweeping curves and lots of scenic views.
