Day Hiking Adventures — Explore Mountains, Woodlands and Streams





Smugglers' Notch Resort's guided hikes and self-guided walks, wikes and hikes in Vermont's lovely Green Mountains offer opportunities for family adventures as well as challenging outings for the most seasoned hiker.

We suggest that you choose your walk or hike based upon the degree of difficulty and duration of the outing. Our guided hiking program includes the following types of outings:

Walks - A 1 and 1/2 hour walk involving mild to moderate exercise. Considered the easiest in difficulty.

Wikes - A little longer in duration, up to 3 hours, and moderate to demanding exercise.

Hikes - The most physically demanding and longest in duration, typically 4 to 6 hours.


We invite you to help support stewardship of the trail network around Smugglers'. All of our hikes that extend beyond the boundaries of our own property must be registered with the Green Mountain Club in an effort to track the environmental impact on the trails. The Green Mountain Club works to protect and maintain the system of trails associated with the Long Trail, Vermont's border-to-border 273 mile hiking trail. As with many programs at Smugglers', stewardship of the land has always been a high management priority. Dogs are not allowed on our guided hikes.

Check out all the Guided Hiking:

A SmuggsPass or Daycation Ticket is required to participate in Stretch & Go and our guided Hikes. Please note that advance sign-up is required for all programs. Stretch and Go and Hikes meet on the Village Green.
