Walking in Hubbard Park provides a great workout, because it's on a huge hill. The paths are heavily wooded and private.

Beautiful place to go and spend a few hours hiking and the views from the top of the tower are stunning especially at sunset this place will always be special to me too as I proposed to my fiancé here

We passed through. Wanted to find a playground to stretch our legs. No playground but cool trails and a nice grassy area. We would love to come back and see more one day.

To access the observation tower, you can climb for 30 minutes behind the capitol building, or drive up and walk less than 10 minutes on a gently sloping trail. After climbing almost 70 steps, the views from the top of the tower were disappointing because...More

Good park and special to me. I started going here with family at a young age and continue to go usually at least once a year or more. It is a nice park, clean, and worth the short walk to the castle

We hiked from the capitol building to the look out tower. Ground was covered with snow, but the trails were nicely packed. Lots of unleashed dogs, which didn't bother me a bit, but might bother some. Trails aren't marked well, but it's a pretty small...More

One can spend a few hours at Hubbard Park, enjoy a quiet walk up to the top and look out over Montpelier. A beautiful walk with your dog too.

So lucky to have this forested gem right in the center of town. Miles of beautifully kept hiking trails groomed for skiing in the winter. My dog and I absolutely could not live here without this park

Went to the park after a light dusting of snowfall in December. Obviously December is not the ideal time to take a hike, but we had no complaints about the beautiful and peaceful tranquility. The air was crisp and clean and the other nature-loving hikers...More

Definitely, if you're in moderately good shape. There are some steep areas, but if you take it slow you'll be fine. Just as an FYI, we are both in our 50's and hike approximately 2-3 times per week.
