Hikes & Walks in the Green Mountains of Vermont
Take in the views with a spectacular mountain hike or walk
Fall in Vermont — there's nothing like it. What better way to experience the breathtaking beauty of the Green Mountains and rolling hills than to explore our unique corner of Vermont. Cresting at 2,162 feet is spectacular Smugglers' Notch Pass, a notch notorious during Prohibition as a smuggling route from Canada. As part of the Mount Mansfield State Forest, home to some of Vermont's most majestic peaks, this untouched stretch of nature entices your exploring spirit. Discover ancient caverns, traverse well-explored trails, and simply breathe in its unbelievable beauty and spectacular scenery.
Whether you choose one of our walks on easier nature trails, one of our intermediate wikes, or a more vigorous, all-day hiking adventure, you're sure to find the perfect level of activity for yourself and your family. Many of our trails include portions of the Long Trail, Vermont's 273 miles long border-to-border hiking trail.
Feel free to explore on your own — we'll provide you with maps and directions for self-guided walks, wikes and hikes. It's a great way to blend overall fitness with the exhilarating discovery of Vermont's finest features — wildlife, wildflowers and scenery that will stop you in your tracks.
