Mount Mansfield State Forest, Stowe

(4.7/5 based on 600+ reviews on the web)
Reach the very top of Vermont with a climb up Mount Mansfield State Forest, the state's highest mountain. With a summit over 1,300 m (4,300 ft) above sea level, this peak is one of only three spots in Vermont where alpine tundra survives from as far back as the last Ice Age. Said to resemble a human profile, and most distinct when viewed from the east, the mountain offers visitors different views via several hiking trails. Some of the most popular trails start from a state park located on the western side of the mountain, where the terrain naturally provides a good shelter from adverse weather conditions. Check online for trail conditions and closings before you make the trip.

  • The best ski area in the East. Loaded with traditions, one comes here to make their own memories. Every trio is a new experience, for families of all ages there is not a better place to come.  more »
  • amazing hike! we went all the way to the top. Guides that say this is easy to moderate are grading on the Vermont scale. I highly suggest you be in good shape when you go.  more »
