Scenic Drive Wilmington, VT to New Paltz, NY?

Calling all VT/NY/MA experts...

My wife and I are staying for a couple of days around Wilmington, VT and a then a few around New Paltz, NY.

To get to New Paltz, I can certainly retrace my steps back to Albany and then back down the NY Thruway, I was considering taking a route a bit less travelled...

We're not in a huge hurry... the current plan is to leave VT after breakfast and arrive in New Paltz in the afternoon with enough time to do some hiking in Mohonk Preserve before heading to our lodging.

Any suggestions for a route or stops along the way?

Thanks in advance!

An alternate route it to go through Rhinebeck and across the Hudson on the Kingston-Rhinebeck bridge.

You can get to Rhinebeck by 1st taking Rt 8, 7 or 22 south through MA or NY, then take the Taconic from I-90 exit B2 & cutting west on Rt199, or by taking a slower route on Rt9.

I would take VT-7 up to Rutland and than 4 west to Lake George and I87 back to NY. Check out more things around VT 7 on my web-site and podcast.
