Favorite hikes

Page history last edited by Vermont Librarian 12 years, 3 months ago

Mt. Abe from Lincoln Gap. It's always amazing to get up to the summit and look down on the familiar landscape. It seems so far removed from every day life. Give it a try!

Park at the Sterling Lodge at the Notch and hike up the ski trail to the top of Madonna to see the sunset. Do this on a clear night with a full moon and then hike down. Beautiful! -Sandy

 

Moose Mountain in Barton-provides amazing views of Willoughby and all the surrounding peaks up through Canada!

 

Oops! I commented instead of edited. Mount Worcester. See below!

 

 

I love Brousseau Mountain waaaay up in the Northeast Kingdom in Norton.  The hike is short, the view of Little Averill Lake is awesome, and it's on a flyway so you can watch the birds soar.  Bring your kayak for a wonderful paddle around this still relatively undeveloped pond after your hike.  Emily

 

Okay...this one is a long way to get to but well worth the trip!   The East Coast Trail in Newfoundland makes its way gently through coastal heath and along rocky shores.  You will find breathtaking views of the sea with whales spouting and breaching down below you and gorgeous gannets flying by in the distance and waves crashing on rocky shores as songbirds sing around you.  It's a hike NOT to be missed!

   

 

Closer to home...my favorite Vermont hike is what we call the Belvidere triangle. Start on the Foresters Trail and head up to Belvidere. Follow the Long Trail north to Tillotson Camp. Return to your car via Frank Post Trail (You'll want a Long Trail Guide)  It's a great hike when the birds are singing in early June.

Mount Worcester near Montpelier. Gorgeous, usually quiet, and a good sitting spot at the top.

Help me out with the location of Moose Mountain. I've hiked Wheeler and Bald which afford both afford similar views but don't know where Moose Mt. is.

Camel's Hump and the White Mountains. I can't remember where we hiked in the White Mountains this summer but it was amazing! Our daughter is attempting all the major peaks in Vermont and New HAmpshire and we are trying keep up with her.
