NEQ Tri State Fall Color Drive

October 8

Join us for a fun day driving the mountains of New England with a group of Audi enthusiasts (all cars welcome, however) followed by a group dinner at the historic and charming Red Lion Inn in quaint  Stockbridge NY, also home of the Norman Rockwell Museum.  Come drive, dinner or both! Spend Sunday exploring the beautiful town of Stockbridge and surrounding country side.

We will start at the Dehnert homestead in the country at 315 Carrolls Grove Rd, Troy, NY at 10 AM. We have plenty of parking and will have free coffee and pastries to get you started.  Please plan to arrive by 9 AM.  We will have a short drivers meeting to review the drive, schedule and how the drive will be conducted.  The drive will be rain or shine! The total drive will be about 210 miles.

From Troy, NY, will travel over the Petersburgh pass into Massachusetts and then up to the Mt Greylock (3491 ft) summit to enjoy the spectacular view and then down the other side of the mountain into Williamstown, MA for lunch. We will plan about 1.5 hrs for lunch where you can choose to eat at any of a number of cafes in the village.

We will then continue past Bennington, VT through the Woodford State Park over the Molly Stark Trail, climbing over Hogsback Mountain into Brattleboro, VT. This is a fun winding road where the Audi spirits can come alive. We will have a short break in Brattleboro for bathroom and fuel.

We will then make our way south, going through a couple of covered bridges to Stockbridge, MA and the famous Red Lion Inn ( https://www.redlioninn.com/ ) for a group dinner.

We will have a 20 car limit.
