This section passes through three states, each with somewhat different riding conditions, but the roads generally are fair. Vermont and New Hampshire are "mountainous" by eastern standards. General elevation ranges from about 500 to 2,000 feet. Vermont highways are, with a few exceptions, well-signed.

East of Middlebury, Vermont, you have to pedal over a steep "gap" or mountain pass.

After you reach the White Mountains and enter Maine, the elevation is generally less than 500 feet but the terrain is still quite hilly. Near the coast the route follows narrow back roads. However, in places you ride U.S. 1 which carries very heavy recreational traffic. Mount Desert Island roads also have a high amount of tourist traffic as you near Bar Harbor during the summer and fall color season.

ABOUT ADVENTURE CYCLING MAPS
Adventure Cycling maps are created by cyclists, for cyclists, and they are some of the best available for those in search of discovery and adventure in North America. The maps reflect the association's research as well as suggestions from thousands of cyclists who have explored the Adventure Cycling Route Network. Adventure Cycling develops the best cross-country, loop, coastal, and inland cycling routes available, with turn-by-turn directions, detailed navigational instructions for the tricky sections, and elevation profiles in the high country.

The maps are waterproof and designed to fit in a handlebar-bag window or jersey pocket. The maps provide information specifically for cyclists: the location of bike shops, sources for food and water, and listings of overnight accommodations including camping facilities, small hotels, and cyclists-only lodging.
