Daytime Activities for Adults

Adult Fun and Freedom!

Endless adventure & action for adults!

June 5 - September 7, 2015.

There's no end to the fun you can have with your youngsters, and there's plenty of action or relaxing you can do on your own while your kids are being well cared for and enjoying new friends in our award-winning, full day programs.
Daily, professionally guided walks & hikes.

Join us for the entire week or for any one of our daily nature walks on easy trails or more vigorous all-day mountain hiking adventures including portions of the Long Trail and Mount Mansfield State Forest with some of Vermont's highest peaks. Our skilled guides know the area's natural history, the out of the way trails and the best views. Along the way, you'll build your aerobic fitness while you discover Vermont's wildlife, abundance of alpine trees, wildflowers and stunning scenery.

There are also self-guided walks, wikes and hikes in addition to nature trails for those who want to explore on their own. Hike to a waterfall or to our mountain water playground, or climb the spectacular Smugglers' Notch Pass area.

Our Vermont Environment

Smugglers' policy of environmental stewardship pervades all our activities. We seek to raise the environmental awareness of guests and employees and to broaden their knowledge and appreciation through educational programs along with our active and passive use of the land for year round recreation.
