America's Scenic Byways

Stone Valley Byway

30 miles - 50 minutes to drive the byway, 2.5 hours if you take stops along the way.

The Stone Valley Scenic Byway features a rich background in slate and marble production, as well as incredible scenic, recreational, and cultural amenities. This segment of Vermont Route 30, spanning from Manchester to Poultney, is highlighted by mountain slopes that provide a dramatic backdrop to the rural landscape and provide access to a host of recreational opportunities. Historic, picturesque towns dot the valley floors, and rich agricultural soils have accumulated alongside the free-flowing Mettawee and Poultney Rivers. Lake St. Catherine, the State Park, golf course and many smaller water bodies along the byway corridor are exceptional natural, scenic, and recreational resources.
