We hiked to the top via Long Trail S and it was a beautiful hike. Once you hit the chin, there is a bit of climbing involved. Just make sure you have good footing and hand holds. If you fall...you would probably die. That is how I judge my hikes and these are the hikes I love. We went down the Cliff trail to the lift. It was a 6 mile day and that was plenty after 2 flights and a drive the night before. Beautiful hike and Taft lodge is a must see on the way.

I summited the Mountain. Breathtaking fall views. I could see lake Champlain from the top. A challenging hike but well worth it.

Knowing there was no way my knees would allow me to hike from the bottom to the summit, we debated between driving the toll road or taking the gondola. We opted to drive up to the parking area and then continue on. Unfortunately, I couldn’t make it to the top, stopping when you needed to rock scramble (and to think my son climbed the entire trail in the snow, needing crampons). The views were still spectacular and the following day we took the gondola up. Both experiences were neat in their own right. I recommend checking the forecast prior to going up the mountain at mountain-forecast.com, where the forecast is given for a slew of mountains at various elevations.

Steep price to drive the toll road to the top, but more affordable than the Gondola. Very nice view from the top. Additional hiking available once at the top.

Rode the gondola to the top and what a great view

we loved it so much we drove the toll road up the other side of the mountain the next day which takes you higher on another side of the mountain

Great views for sure

A must while in Stowe

well worth it

Owned and run by Stowe resorts, Mt. Mansfield is the tallest mountain in their system. The toll road is accessible only in the summer months ($36.00 toll for two) as it is fairly steep going up the 4.2 mile gravel road.

Once you park, you can then hike to the top of Mt. Mansfield, 1.5 miles one way and allow between 60-90 minutes. Best to wear hiking sandals/shoes as there are often steep inclines and could be wet. There are porta potties, but the visitor center has been long closed. Bring your own bottled water.

Also recommend to arrive early as the parking lot only holds 36 cars.

Views are spectacular and makes you want to come back in the winter to go skiing. If you want to spend more time here, there are other trails but the hike to the top is by far the most popular.

From the parking lot in Underhill, there are four routes to the top of the mountain so there are many loops up and down the mountain

I went on an all day hike. Much of our hike was under the canopy of trees and in the shade which made for a very pleasant experience. It was rocky terrain and I highly recommend walking sticks and good hiking boots. That said, it was a totally doable hike for almost any fitness level. It is a beautiful way to spend a day or more. The area is just gorgeous.

There are many ways to get to the top of this. We hiked starting at the south long trail (on the stowe side). This was an extremely difficult route as you are going up a creek bed for most of this hike and having to go up and over many rocks. Once we got into the alpine region of the hike, it was super challenging. You are basically scrambling up a cliff face for the last bit of the climb. I am not a scrambler and was extremely uncomfortable for this part of the climb. Once at top though, the views are awesome. We had a perfect day for 360 views. It made the climb worth it. We hiked back down a different way as it is not recommended to go down the way we came up. We met a technical climber up top, who agreed that it would not be wise to go back down the same way and she ended up taking our information about the alternate route down. If you want to see the top of this you pay to drive up a toll road and then have a much shorter (although still not easy) climb to the top for the views.
