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.

Went on a summer day with no skiers/bikers, so we went up a biking trail. it was winding back and forth so we were hopping on to different hiking trails to shorten our route. At one point lost the trail, started climbing the ski paths. Pink trail at the summit is really steep, but thats when the views get good. Last few legs on Pink are difficult. Bathroons and water fountain at summit! A little weird not to be in woods going up. Took Yellow Access Road down, all gravel.

A scenic and fun hike for the whole family!

Awesome views

A perfect hike. A total of 4 miles, 2 out and 2 back. It poured the night before and morning of, and the trail was in good condition. Little mud, Lots of rock and an unbelievable view at the summit. Taking our time it was about a 2 hour and 15 minute hike. Would highly recommend for anything not looking to kill themselves, but get a solid workout. Saw a number of people and dogs!!

Toughest summit around. Solid pitch with no breaks. Some cool side trails and viewing areas near the top. Final stretch through stream beds and pines is awesome.

Mellow trail to the falls; no true steeps. Falls are spectacular; great place to spend a few hours. Some trail sections are a bit awkward because of the amount of rocks in the ground. The easiest hike I've done in the region, but still a good reward.

A little hard to find the trailhead at first, as they are currently constructing new stairs at the beginning. We missed the scenic vista on the way up (and there is not much of an overlook at the top) but found the views on the way down. A little more than 3.5 hours and that includes stopping for lunch at the top

Very difficult but very rewarding. I did this hike in March in 6 degree temperatures. It was below 0 degrees at the top of the mountain (even colder with the wind chill), but the view of southern Vermont and New Hampshire was worth it.
This hike is very steep and took a lot out of my friend and me. The woods are thick toward the top. Town is very cute too (Manchester). I would recommend this hike to people in moderate to great shape. If you want to do it in the winter (like I did), bring spikes for your boots. The hike is icy and I slipped quite a few times.

Absolutely great hike. Starts off very easy, and then finishes with a punch in the gut. The views are amazing all the way up including great stream crossings, a small waterfall, and then a few overlooks before the summit. Highly recommend.
