Mount Independence Trail is a 4.3 mile loop trail located near Orwell, VT that features a lake and is good for all skill levels. The trail is primarily used for hiking and walking and is accessible from April until October. Dogs are also able to use this trail.
We hike these trails often as we live nearby. Trails are well maintained, it's still very muddy on the trails closest to the lake. Beautiful views!
Took the blue trail out and returned on the orange. Very well maintained.
Trails are clearly marked. Some are handicap accessible. Gorgeous views at the Northern end. Blue trail is muddy for large stretches.
There are over six miles of trail at this historic site. The trails are well maintained and there are many interpretive signs along the trail. The hike is fairly flat, and there were many users on the trail on the Saturday we hiked. I rated this trail a five for it's historical significance and the quality of the trails.
