Fairly easy, short hike. A little bit steep at the start and end. Some streams to cross, but nothing too challenging. The view is okay, but the interstate below is a distraction (you can hear the traffic most of the trail). A good starter hike after (or before) Philo.
Rusty B. on Duxbury Window Trail
My fiancée and I did this hike during a weekend trip to Burlington over Thanksgiving break. I would definitely rate it closer to moderate, but some of the added difficulty may have been because of the wet, slippery conditions that were the result of all the fallen leaves and a recent shower. The end of the trail is marked by the "window," or what amounts to a small peak. There's a bench to sit and enjoy it from but the view is very restricted, not the expansive lookout I was hoping for. It was a nice hike and I enjoyed the waterfall along part of it, but I would definitely look elsewhere if we were in the area again. It may be a better setting in the summer and spring. 3/5 stars.
Although the description refers to hiking, this and all the audubon trails are particularly great for one thing: birding! The trails are very clear and easy to stroll through, with many great opportunities to spot a wide variety of birds.
Huntington gorge is pure insanity! Awesome breathtaking views and gnarly cliff jumping! This is the best of Vermont's "off the beaten path". in the summer time there is no place i would rather be then climbing boulders, swimming under waterfalls and jumping off 20-30 ft platforms into pristine crystal clear mountain water!! This place can be very dangerous though make sure your down by the lower buckets as the upper gorge is only for viewing pleasure but swimming is not a good idea as the currents are heck strong and have been know to be deadly.....ahhhh Mother Nature u sexxy thing. Love this place!!! and these directions aren't right though... Ill update this with better directions if I can !!!
Very hard to find. Didn't know where it started or ended. No signs anywhere. After finally finding it, I found the trails to be very fun. Mountain bikers are able to go somewhat fast. It has some quick easy turns and drop offs which make it pretty fun. Very narrow trail though. Wouldn't recommend for an experienced mountain biker. This more for beginners and mid level riders.
