Vermont to Maine Coast

Hello, I'm looking for the best route from around Burlington, Vermont to Winter Harbor, Maine. When I look up directions I'm getting routes on a lot of secondary roads. Does anyone know a more direct way avoiding a lot of stop and go?

Went over most of that trip last year. We went south from Rt 2 through North Conway. Did 2 across Maine to a bit west of Bangor. Mostly 2 lane but nothing there to slow you down but the hills. The few towns you will hit give you a shot at gas and groceries. I suspect the link between where we turned off and Vermont is about the same. Any way around to use the super slabs will add enough miles to make it longer time wise.

Most folks actually like Route 2. It is 2 lane and has hills, but the alternative is a lot longer, and this time of year traffic can be a problem. If you want all interstate you will have to take 89 south to 93, all the way down to 495 in Ma, then take that north to 95. There are some other secondary roads like 4 & 202 part way down, but IMHO, they are no better than 2.

It's hard to go east/west across northern New England. If it were easy, everyone would do it. ;-)

Thank you for the advice, I guess Rt 2 it is. You really can't get there from here!

I should say, that the route 2 drive is a pretty one for most of the trip. Hope you enjoy. Be safe.

We used Rt. 2 as well in 2013 headed to the Maine coast from St. Johnsbury, VT. Good road and thank goodness, everyone was headed FROM the coast...miles and miles of RVs headed West...that was good - more lobster for us.

Rt 2 was great for us two years ago when we left Maine and went into the state of Vermont.
