Best way to get from Saratoga Springs area to Burlington

I will be driving from around Saratoga Springs, NY, to Burlington in mid-February, and Google Maps is telling me to take the Essex-Charlotte Ferry. Something tells me this would be a big mistake, what with winter, ice, and all! Is the best thing to do to get off I-87 above Glens Falls, NY, take route 4 into Rutland, then go north on Route 7? Is that a reasonably manageable drive in the winter?

From Glens Falls, take 149 to 4 east to 22A north to 7 north. No need to go all the way over to Rutland. It's a very well travelled and well maintained route. Have fun!

I agree with previous poster. 22A is a fantastic road, nice and scenic and normally faster than Route 7. Just beware of deer and other wildlife if you are traveling at dusk, dawn, or nighttime.

Excellent advice on this forum.

Route 149 is just off of Exit 20 (on route 87).

Enjoy the spectacular view!

Take the same route (22A), it'll be green as opposed to white!
