Deerfield Ridge Trail from Haystack to Mount Snow

SCHWER 13 Bewertungen

Deerfield Ridge Trail from Haystack to Mount Snow ist ein 10.5 Meilen langer Hin- und Rückweg in der Nähe von Wilmington, Vermont. Er führt durch schönen Wald, vorbei an herrlichen Aussichtspunkten und es gibt oftmals Wildtiere zu sehen. Aufgrund der Steigung und Distanz ist die Strecke als schwierig einzustufen. Hier kann hervorragend gewandert und gejoggt werden. Hunde sind erlaubt, müssen allerdings an der Leine gehalten werden.

Lots of bogs. Follow the pink ribbons around the big bog near Mt Snow

Last time I did this trail was 4.5 years ago. And this time was a bit of a better experience, perhaps because it was fall and there weren't any black flies and secondly because someone ribbon marked a trail around the bogs nearest to mount snow... Thank you !!!! It's unfortunate that it isn't used more because it really is a nice walk (in the fall only). The trail needs some basic trimming and cutting, and although close in many places, was still all very passable. It is unmarked but rest assured at this point the trail is still obvious because it must have been severely cut back at one time for snowmobile or other usage. The bog near the old Hermitage ski area seems to have grown but if you stick close to the rocks it's totally fine, I wish I had brought ribbons to mark for others. Do not attempt the other side... use the rock side only!!! The huge bog near mount snow is totally diverted by some kind person with ribbons marking the way. ❤️❤️ I'm giving a rating of only 3 because it really does need some attention or more usage. In some areas, especially midway, it needs serious cutting or in a couple years nature may take over. I wish Vermont cared for its trails the way NY and NH, but if usage increases we can at least keep the trail clear. Get out and hike the ridge trail, it's fun and fall is a great time to enjoy the Ridge.

We went the opposite way. Started at the bottom of Mt Snow and went along the ridge to Haystack. The ridge is overgrown but a nice walk through the woods. There is no vistas along the ridge between the mountains. We were told by someone who had just did the trail to watch for the pink marks before the marshes. They are trails that go completely around them. When we got to Haystack there was a few chairs on a deck overlooking the mountain. It was a perfect spot for lunch. It was so clear we could see Mount Washington. We hiked back over the ridge and the bar at the summit of Mt Snow was open so we had a couple of beers and ended up taking the ski lift down. What we did was 9.3 miles. If we hadn't cheated ( ha ha) taking the ski lift down to the bottom it would have been between 12 and 12 1/2 miles. A very nice enjoyable hike on a beautiful clear fall day.

very nicely cleared and marking of trail path is good. The beginning of the trail is a decent incline with every quarter of a mile a nice little even break.

Awesome trail. After haystack very over grown. Slow moving. And I can not stress enough. About a mile or so before The Mount Snow Summit, the MARSHES!!! Rough rough wet terrain. Don’t go straight up the center. Stay to the edge.

The trail is nice and clear to Hermitage, after that 50 percent of the time you are unable to see feet due to underbrush. The mud bogs before Mount Snow are no longer a problem, there are well marked and dry narrow trails with orange flagging tape on the east side. I found it to be a nice hike, spotted turkey’s and a Black bear.

Kbo Leth's review is perfect. We tried this about a month later and the rains of June made the bog at 0.3 miles before the Mount Snow complex insane. I was two small children and the bog was dangerous. It was like most mountain bogs I have seen we stuck towards the far left and hit tree roots. I missed one and sunk to my waist. The bog appeared to be about 200 to 300 yds long. We turned back this trail I have heard of people taking to ski on but that bog was not safe to travel. Will revisit it later in the year to make see if this is just seasonal due to the rain fall. There are no views and the scrub is horrible, the trail is barely used. The trail would be great if it was maintained, it is a great difficulty and the ridge portion is enough to make it worth the effort but no one uses it and so it is 20 times more difficult than it should be and a large section has been turned into a bog.

After the initial ascent, this is a relatively flat trail that has only one view and in May there were swarms of black flies and horseflies, making for a very lovely experience. As for the trail itself; The ascent up to Haystack peak is a very nice moderate climb and the reward is a fabulous view east across Vermont to New Hampshire. As you descend back down from the peak, at 0.3 miles, take a right at junction and continue northward, in approx 1 mile from Haystack peak you arrive at the top of The Hermitage ski area. This was uneventful except for a small bog which was easily diverted by sticking close to the boulders on the right side of the trail. The view from the top of the Hermitage ski area was much the same as from the peak of Haystack. Then the next 2.5 miles, from Haystack ski area to Mt. Snow was just a boring hike, with no views, on a path that was both unblazed and unmaintained, as there were several downed trees we had to make are way around. Although it was easy to follow where the path was leading, it was evident Deerfield Ridge Trail is rarely used past Hermitage. At approximately 0.3 miles before coming to the Big Dipper slope at the Sunbrook area of Mt. Snow we came upon a rather large bog that we both at times sank up to our knees. Stay clear of the middle and go way around into the area where there are tree roots to step on to keep you afloat. Not fun by any means. With wet feet and muddy legs we made it out to the slopes of Mt. Snow. As we were unsure if the main lift was running to take us down, we chose to hike across and then down the mountain as we had left a vehicle by the Summit hotel. The total mileage starting at Chimney Hill, up to the Haystack peak, then across the ridge and down to the Mt Snow base area, totaled out at 9.3 miles, 1511 ft ascent and 1667 ft descent.
