Jeffersonville Travel Guide
Welcome to Jeffersonville, VT!Situated at the convergence of the Brewster and Lamoille rivers, 30 mi (50 km) northeast of Burlington, Jeffersonville is one of several quaint villages in Lamoille County. Named in honor of the country—s third president, Thomas Jefferson, the town is best known as the gateway to Smugglers— Notch, a spectacular pass at the base of Mt. Mansfield, Vermont—s highest peak. Route 108, which runs through the Notch between Jeffersonville and Stowe, is one of two officially-designated scenic highways in the state and is particularly popular during Vermont—s famous autumnal foliage. Smugglers— Notch also refers to the area—s ski resort, a family-oriented snow-lovers delight that is located just 5 mi (8 km) south of Jeffersonville.
In town, the carefully renovated Smugglers Notch Inn, built in 1790, embodies Vermont—s history while two of the state—s iconic covered bridges—the Grist Mill Bridge and the Cambridge Junction Covered Bridge—are located a short walk or drive from the village. For many, however, Jeffersonville—s best features are its outdoor opportunities, which in winter means various snow sport activities while biking, in-line skating, climbing, paddling and hiking take over in other seasons. Or, for those wanting just a leisurely stroll, the Cambridge Greenway Recreation Path runs along the Lamoille River through Jeffersonville.
Located just south of Jeffersonville, this historic and scenic covered bridge spans the Brewster River and is also sometimes referred to as the Scott, Bryant or Canyon Bridge.
