Mt. Mansfield never stops taking away my breath. The Classic nose to the chin hike is always fun for families with moderate hiking experience. Although most of Mt. Mansfield is not hiked. The Long Trail goes over the the ridge line of the mountain until the back of the Chin. Then, the Long Trail starts going down to Route 108... More

For years, we've enjoyed driving to the top via the Toll Road, then hiking to the Chin at the "top of Vermont" for a mountain picnic. Best on a clear day, of course.

After climbing Mt. Washington in my car couple years ago Mt Mansfield fall s short in comparison. But if you do it with open mind it is a great road to go up to Mt Mansfield with some great scenic stops in between. The Fee is obviously hiked up like Mt. Washington as it is a tourist area. The road... More

We have skied Stowe many times & wanted to climb the highest peak in VT. We chose the west side of the mountain at the Underhill Camp site. We didn't camp there; it's a 45 minute drive from Burlington. We took the Sunset Ridge Trail up, which has one steep boulder section & a lot of scenic views. Starting up... More

Hike the Hell Brook Trail for a technical trail adventure. Some very challenging sections and very steep. Not a gentle hike at all, make sure to bring plenty of fluids/food/energy supplements. Hike the long trail back down to the bottom, or you could hop on the gondola from the top. The Long Trail, and other trails are more moderate, but... More

The amenities at Stowe are second to none. The snowmaking ensures good coverage even in warm weather. Lots of trails, great grooming. Lift tickets are expensive.

A great way to see the notch and appreciate the mountain if you are not a skier like me… The quad lift is a beautiful ride up to the toll road they a 2 mile hike to the top. Took just enough effort to reach the top, well worth it...

It is simply majestic to view the Vermont mountains. Took the toll road, but it does not go all the way to the summit. Don't forget your hiking boots if you want to get to the summit.
