Hike Mount Mansfield

Mountain Rd.,, 7 mi from Rte. 100,, Stowe, VT
There are numerous approaches up Mount Mansfield. The Long Trail meanders southwest from State Route 108 to Taft Lodge and the summit. A toll road leaves you at the Nose of the mountain (4,062 feet) where you can then take a 1.4-mile walk on the Long Trail heading east to the Chin or summit (4,393 feet). A gondola ride leaves you even closer to the summit on the same stretch of the Long Trail. However, my favorite hike up the mountain is from the south, up the Laura Cowles Trail and down the Sunset Ridge Trail. The hike starts at the Underhill State Park Ranger Station.

Best For:  Kids (7-9)   Tweens (10-12)   Teens (13+)
