What is the highest drivable mountain in Vermont? It is Mount Mansfield, which stands at 4,393 feet above sea level. However, the Motor Mountain USA crew were not able to drive to the top of this lush and green state. This is the second time that we have not been able to get close to the top of a state. This time there was no closed private property gate (like in Illinois). It was completely our own fault. So what happened?
Getting to thirteen mountain tops of the north-east within nine days is a big challenge in itself. Why such a tight schedule? Well, TFL team members have many other work and family obligations. We cannot afford going out and leaving home for about a month at a time.
We pushed and worked as hard as possible, but did not realize the toll road gate closure and arrived about one hour late. We could not return the next day, as the following schedule was too tight.
One of the best ways of experiencing America first hand is hitting the open road with the windows and top down in the 2015 Jeep Rubicon Wrangler Rubicon Hard Rock. The Motor Mountain USA (#MMUSA) team embarks upon an epic road trip this year by visiting the highest drivable roads of every state in the USA. Along the way Nathan, Roman, Andre and Emme will visit locales less traveled and uniquely American attractions that make the United States one of the world’s favorite tourist destinations.
Check out this episode of the Motor Mountain USA as Nathan and Andre traverse the windy roads of Vermont in search of Mount Mansfield.
The Vermont belt buckle is hidden not far from the Mount Mansfield toll road entrance. Watch the video below to see the location and watch the boys deal with defeat.
