The tallest peak in Vermont is a challenging and rewarding hike, with a wonderful 360 degree view at the top. Most recently, we hiked from the Underhill State Park on the west side. We went up the Laura Cowles trail and came down the Sunset...More

Hiked a 3.5 mile loop of the X-Country trails on Mt Mansfield. It was a beautiful trail by a river and was great for adults, 2 dogs and a 3 year old.

Maybe in the summer but not in the winter, but there is always the gondola... they have winter hikes in the snow, just call the adventure center in the base village.

The gondola takes you to the top of the mountain slowly and takes about 15 minutes to get to the top. I was surprised at how steady the ride is. However once you reach the top, we did get off rather quickly, although as... More
