How to Get to Happy Trails
ocation, location, location! is situated just outside the village of Ludlow, only 2 miles from Okemo base area. We’re close enough (1 mile) to enjoy the town, but still away from the winter season’s hustle and bustle.
Ludlow is centrally located in southern Vermont (see the first map below—as always, clicking on the thumbnail will bring up a full-sized version, and these can be printed if you like). We are 4 hours from New York City, 3 hours from Boston and two-and-a-bit from Hartford.
From New York, Connecticut, and Rhode Island: Take I-91 North to Vermont exit 6. Follow Route 103 north/west 10 miles to Chester; turn right, and continue on Route 103 for 11 miles. Happy Trails is on the right, one mile from Ludlow.
From Massachusetts: Take Mass. Route 2 west to I-91 North, then follow the directions above.
From Albany: Take New York Route 7 north to Bennington, Vermont, then U.S. Route 7 to Manchester. Follow Route 11 east/south, to Route 100 North, to Ludlow. Take a right onto Route 103. Happy Trails is one mile on the left.
One of the best things about being in south central Vermont is how close we are to several towns known for fine dining, great shopping, artistic offerings, and entertainment: Weston (15 minutes away), Chester (20 minutes), Woodstock (40 minutes), and Manchester (40 minutes). See our Area Activities page for all the details.
Finally, there are some recreational activities in the area that should not be missed. Besides the famous Okemo Mountain Ski Resort, there's swimming at lovely Buttermilk Falls, or at Echo Lake in the Camp Plymouth State Park, as well as area golf courses and hiking trails. Again, be sure to check our Activities page.
You'll also want to check our Local and Regional Events Calendar for special festivals and happenings throughout southern Vermont. We'll also be happy to help you map out day trips and scenic drives (like the beautiful Route 100) that you'd like to explore while you're here—just ask! We love sharing our "special finds" with our guests, and over the years we've accumulated quite a number of them...mainly because our guests keep sharing their finds with us!
