Great hike, really enjoyed it. We went up the long trail, which was steep in place & a decent bit of scrambling up to. I rather enjoyed this as I love climbing and haven’t been for a while. The views on the way up are stunning and the summit views are incredible. We didn’t stay up for long as there was a storm due. Highly recommended!!

Short hike, not much of a view at the top.

This was a fun, quick hike that had a “kick” to it. I will definitely return to hike all the way up.

Hicking trail on this app was not well described we took the “RED” road on the map provided by this app..... we ended up “off trail” almost got hurt! It was badly indicated and also to much detail were left out! It’s not a hicking trail so much as your walking in the rocks of the ski descent! There was one part after the the Lincoln Peak that was fun it was really a hicking trail in the woods and fun! Other then that it was very dangerous and we could have got hurt ! This should have been only for winter
Also we went all the way to Lincoln Peak and it clearly says 1200m or 3973 feet of altitude! And this app says that we only did 700m of altitude!! Kinda sucks after all this hard work you like to have your stats correct!!

Beautiful and easy walking trail. We did 6 miles out and back (3 each way). It was a great recovery walk after doing The Long Trail to the Chin the day before.

I decided to go via the Beaver Meadow as I arrived a bit later in the day-it had been raining in the morning and was still lightly raining when I arrived. The hike up was moderate in most areas, a few difficult spots. When I got to the top, it was sunny and lovely, however there was cloud cover all below me and on ll of the surrounding mountain tops, it was like I was standing above the clouds-amazing!

Awesome trail! Many different types of mushrooms. Beautiful area. I was not able to find the Mine though. Does anyone know where it is located on the trail?

Great network of easy hiking trails, perfect for exercising a dog. Enough space to spend hours walking. Beautiful natural setting.

One of my favorite hikes! Challenging but well worth the effort once you reach the summit.

I loved it! The only flaw is that for me I had no idea where to turn around and the constant background noise. Other than that, it was incredible!!!!

Great trail, even better when the sun came out

If you've got friends or family visiting you in Vermont, Mount Philo is the perfect way to spend a few hours. A very easy mile each way gets you some great views of Lake Champlain and the surrounding areas. Very crowded in the summer, try to hike this one around 5 or 6 pm to catch the setting sun over Lake Champlain.

I've hiked just about every major mountain in Vermont and this is by far the toughest. It might not be the highest elevation gain or the longest hike, but from the parking lot to the summit this trail goes unrelenting up at a steep incline. The second half of the trail goes up nearly 3/4 of the elevation gain over just one mile. The views are incredible and 360 degrees, just get ready to sweat to earn this one!

This was a pretty hike but not what I would call easy. There were some pretty steep sections that left my family winded. The forest was lovely but not a good view of the waterfall and the highway detracts from the window view.

Amazing hike. The gentle climb goes through a variety of sugar lots and old farmlands. The view at the top is incredible. Nice log house at the top identifies the mtn peaks that you can see.

Badly indicated trails that had us guessing most of the first part from Sugarloaf Ski Area. We made it eventually to Lincoln and then Abraham. Nice views from the top.
Will revisit and climb Abraham from the western part.

Nice family friendly hike. You can choose to stick to path or follow the paved road both up and down. Offers some beautiful views of Lake Champlain.

Some rate this as a moderately difficult hike, some as a difficult hike. Let’s say it’s moderately difficult. As with any hike when you gain roughly 1000 ft. per mile, you have to work. The upper part will require some hand over foot climbing over over some dramatic outcroppings. Efforts are rewarded by probably the best views of any mountain in Vermont, as you have views, just to the west, of Vermont’s loftiest range, Mt Mansfield, Camel’s Hump, etc. In fact you have the most expansive view of virtually all of the major mountains in the Green Mountain range. Not to mention, just to the east, views of many of the western White mountains.

It was lovely in the woods, with a couple of nice vistas near the peak of Green Mtn. Continued toward Little Rock Pond, with a few more nice views along the way. Continued along the LT/AT south to complete the loop. Flat and lots of hikers headed out the 1.7 mi to the parking area. A nice hike.

This is the perfect walk with amazing views of Lake Champlain. It’s also a great bike ride, including a paid ferry trip to Chicago next to the Lake Champlain Islands.

Really fun adventure with a lot of navigation involved. You begin the journey on a series of logging roads, these get more narrow and at times overgrown the farther you go. After the second river crossing you transition into spruces and there’s a couple steep switchbacks. All the directions in the trail description are correct and all the landmarks are still there. I would recommend screenshoting the directions and printing them so you can better navigate the logging roads. You should see two cairns on the switchbacks, ignore the first and begin bushwhacking on the second. The bushwhack begins with open woods with lots of ferns. These get much thicker as you near the summit, if you stick more to the left on the way up there’s a herd path that avoids most of these. The summit has a sign and a canister, which I had no problem opening. There’s a pen and a visitors log inside. If you backtrack to the false summit there’s a ledge with a great view of Killington.

Gorgeous hike. We did this in fall with the foliage so everything was doubly pretty. Highly recommend doing Clara Bow trail loop from the lodge. It is nice and quiet there.

A pleasant trail with wild berries and a brook. For a more “moderate” experience, be sure to climb the hill to the upper trails (see my photos of the “Afternoon Delight” and “Sundown” trails up there).

This is a must do, whether you’re a local or just visiting. It’s easy, it’s scenic and it’s a fabulous way to see the lake.
