I am looking to ride up to Burlington, V.T. for a July thru-hike of the Long Trail and after doing some poking around it looks like the best route would be to take PA Bike Route L up, then pick up NY Bike Route 11 until Watertown, and then cut over in the direction of V.T. on the NY Olympic Scenic Byway (and eventually picking up the ferry across and cycling on to Burlington).
Has anyone done segments of this route and have any comments? I have had a tough time trying to find elevation tables and traffic & infrastructure information for the route. Also, as of now I am doing this solo but am open to any and all to join for parts (or the whole)! The time table looks to be to head out on June 21st/22nd and try to log >100 mi days (it's only a 600 mi route).
