Wait your turn to cross the 1836 one-way bridge located in the heart of Taftsville Village, then head left on Old River Road, hugging the curve of the Ottauquechee River. You’ll want to keep your speed low—and it’s not just because of the packed-dirt and gravel path! River vistas abound on one side while a slice of unspoiled nature greets you on the other for two majestic miles before giving way to sprawling farmland.
When you come to the picture-perfect Golden Cow Barn, turn right onto Cloudland Road. Pause and take photos as you see fit.
