Guided Hikes and Walks in the Green Mountains of Vermont

Mountain Adventures for all abilities!

Guided Walks, Wikes and Hikes are offered August 31 - October 18, 2015.

Professionally-guided hikes, walks and wikes match your level of experience: walks are 1-2 hours of mild to moderate exercise on easy trails; wikes can be up to 3 hours of moderate exercise on more challenging trails; and hikes are as long as 6 hours of more vigorous mountain adventures. Join our skilled guides on the Sterling Pond Hike, Family River Walk or The Green Mountain Wike to really get to know Smugglers', the area's natural history and the out of the way trails.

Sterling Pond Hike
Saturday, 10:00 am

This 4-hour hike will take you to the top of Sterling Mountain to the highest trout pond in the state.

This walk offers you the opportunity to take in the surrounding area through your sense of touch, taste, smell and sound.

Family River Walk
Sunday, 10:00 am

Explore the banks of the No Name Brook as it winds its way along the edge of the Village and learn about its impact on the surrounding woodland areas. A walk designed for families with young children.

Green Mountain Wike
Sunday, 1:00 pm

This beautiful wike will give you a chance to experience even more of our little corner of Vermont. The rustling of leaves, the babbling brooks and the fresh air will take your cares away.

Strap on your hiking boots from this challenging climb to the highest peak in Vermont. When the summit is attained, vistas of New York, New Hampshire, Lake Champlain and perhaps even Canada may be seen! This is the most strenuous hike on the menu, twice the size of Sterling Pong hike, so come prepared.

Learn to identify the different types of maple trees and about maple sugaring.

Learn about the variety of habitat that a black bear might use during a yearly, seasonal cycle, what types of plants and animals support these seasonal activities and why we hardly ever see bears.
