Staff Reviews

The volunteers of Vermont's statewide hiking organization, the Green Mountain Club, have compiled this comprehensive guide to fifty of the best hiking trails in the state. Abundant, colorful information about geology, history and wildlife highlight this carefully detailed hiking guide that will lead you into the verdant wilds of Vermont with confidence. No one knows and loves the trails of Vermont better than the Green Mountain Club, and portions of the proceeds from this book will assist their endeavors to preserve and protect our Vermont trails. — Erik Barnum


This definitive guide to hiking in Vermont is completely revised and updated and includes six new hikes. In addition to covering the Green Mountains it includes 6 more new hikes ranging throughout the state.

From gentle nature trails to rugged peak climbs, from remote fishing holes to historic ghost towns, from rushing waterfalls to rare peregrine falcon habitat, the Green Mountain State has much to offer hikers. This completely revised and updated sixth edition leads hikers up classic peaks like Camel's Hump, Mount Mansfield, and Mount Ascutney, as well as revealing many more lesser-known gems.

The hikes range in length from a half-mile stroll to a 22-mile backpacking trip. Each hike description includes a topographic map, mile-by-mile directions, and information on distance, difficulty, terrain, and hiking time. An overview chart makes it easy to pick a hike for every ability. And each hike description is enlivened by knowledgeable commentary on the area's geology, history, flora, and wildlife.
