From the Mad River Byway website:

come for the mountains, stay for the valley

The Mad River Byway may be
short in length - at a mere 36 miles - but foot by foot, it offers up an
enthralling density of experiences. Following two of Vermont's most
scenic roads, Routes 100 and 100B, this valley is a landscape of
forested mountains, hillside farms, a flowing river, and church-steepled
villages. Destination ski resorts are located uphill, and downhill the
destination is the villages - all rich in history, culture, historic
buildings, town greens, community activities and special events. Throw
in a hyper-local food scene and entertainment and festivals year round,
and you have a region worthy of exploring for a day, a week, or a
lifetime.
