Lincoln Gap

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.

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... More

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... More

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... More

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... More

I might be slightly biased because I live in Lincoln, but I have traveled all over the United States, and Lincoln Gap is an incredibly scenic and fun road!! Plus, I'm not sure that I've been on a steeper mountain pass... Go slow, as the road surprises you a few times by going from paved to dirt and back to... More

The Lincoln gap is a fun stretch of (still mostly) dirt road... which can be a whole lot of fun on a motorcycle! If you are into hiking, there is a parking lot at the top of the gap that allows you to hike on the "Long Trail" http://www.greenmountainclub.org/page.php?id=2 You are about 6 miles South of Mt Ellen.

We took Lincoln Gap Road between Warren and Lincoln on October 10, 2009 and the color was awesome. Since it is such a narrow road, the trees completely enveloped us with dazzling color. A little slice of heaven in Vermont.
