Intrinsic Resources

A Byway is comprised of “intrinsic resources.” The National Scenic Byway Program defines an intrinsic quality as “features that are considered representative, unique, irreplaceable, or distinctly characteristic of an area. Intrinsic qualities arise from a particular combination of resources along a byway that together define its character, interest and appeal.”

While intrinsic resources surround you during your time on the Byway, we’ve grouped various discrete attractions and sites into three categories. Click the links below to begin your exploration of the unique qualities of the Lake Champlain Byway.
