The Green Mountain National Forest located in Vermont contains portions of the Long Trail as well as other popular hiking peaks and trails. The Appalachian Trail crosses through this park and is a popular destination for New England hikers.

The first half mile will really test your legs. Very steep, challenging, yet exhilarating! After you reach the vista, you are treated to scenes out of a fantasy movie. Be sure to check out the panoramic view just behind the summit sign!

This was a nice easy trail on the last leg of a 2 night backpacking trip starting at Stratton mountain trail.
Still foliage this late in season. Could easily see where most of the wild flowers would have been. Nice stream crossings.

Nice wooded trail, took this as part of a 2 night hike on the long trail starting here. Fire tower is a must.

Starts out easy and then gets much more difficult. Beautiful view from the top!

a great little hike. 2 miles up, 2 miles down. Enough elevation to give you a little sweat. Summit is quite beautiful. definitely worth checking out if you're in the area. Use the directions from the All trails app to get to the trail head. even the drive up is beautiful.

Great little hike. Took about about 2 1/2 hours for the up an back with about 20 min at the falls. It has been dry the last few weeks so the volume of water coming down was not spectacular.

Echoing previous reviewers; easy hike to start then the climb becomes moderate/hard during the last sections. We found heavy clouds during our ascent leading to poor views but that’s legit the course at this elevation! Easy to follow & well marked trail. Parking gets full but plenty of on road options. Plan on a 5 hour round trip in good weather. FYI gondola and lodge is open and also in area of summit leading to increase in foot traffic. One water spicket available near summit.

Trail hugs a stream with several waterfalls, culminating in a serene mountain pond.

In parts challenging for beginners, but the view from Rattlesnake vista was totally worth it. We went during Fall and it was incredible. Our dogs went along and were a little frustrated by having to be kept on leash the whole way.
