This was our second climb up the mountain. The first time we went 2 years ago the views were unparalleled and it was well worth the climb. The second time we went up it was sunny at the base but cloudy at the top with 50 mile an hour winds. It was quite exhilarating. If you are driving up the... More

The mountain is aspiring. The difficult level is high. If you are not a skiing master you can at least take the lift up and view the awesome mountains around.

It's well worth it. Rocky hike but quite doable with only a 3 mile round trip from the parking lot. Great vistas and wonderful views all around.

Go up the auto toll road which is unpaved but not too bad a drive. The views from the top after a walk of 0.3 miles from the car park are absolutely great and well worth the toll road fee to get up there You end up higher than the gondola so we thought it was a better option although... More

From the look out point you were able to see for miles. Vermont and new york at the same time. Bring a picnic lunch and enjoy the natural surroundings. About 1/4 of a mile from where you park, but worth the effort. Gondola rides does not do justice. Take the toll road, much better.

We just finished hiking all the way up Mount Mansfield and feel great, but tired. If you like a challenge and to hike this is for you! Hiking shoes are a must. I had on thin gym shoes and slipped a couple times coming down. The terrain is rocky, many large, and 90% of the climb. When you get near... More

It is a difficult hike. Don't let the 750 feet elevation change fool you,  it's up and down and up and down, so overall more than 750 feet.   It is a very rocky hike too so hiking sticks are a good idea and very helpful.   The trail will probably take 3 hours round trip but it is very nice and...

To get to the top of Mt. Mansfield, the wife and I took a gondola up. Amazing views from there. We stopped to watch some people take zip lines down, which looked like a lot of fun. From there you can hop on a trail which takes you straight up to the summit. It is only a little over a... More

We drove up the Auto Toll road which was deceptively steep, Driving down required keeping the car in 1st gear the entire way. The views were absolutely magnificent, and the hike up to the summit (from Parking lot A) was just right for our three daughters,
