  • We were early arrivals to the tiny parking lot at the trailhead. The walk starts gently through a dense marshy meadow, then gradually ascends through forest. About 2/3 of the way to the top it...  more »
  • I went to Stowe in autumn. I never knew it would be as beautiful as it was. Wheter you are a leaf peeper or not it is worth the visit.  more »

  • One of my favorite places to hike. I would visit daily if it wasn't a 45 minute drive to get here on a good day. the view is amazing and one time there were two huge amazing dogs at the top. a fun and easy hike
  • Trail itself: Amazing. Less than 4 miles and only 1,600 feet elevation gain (compare to Mansfield via the Long Trail which is 5 miles and 2,800 feet, or Mt. Philo which is only 2 miles and 500 feet). Some rock scrambling toward the top, but less than the bigger mountains. It's a nice mid-sized hike with a full-sized vista at the summit! Canine considerations: It is a popular trail, and the summit area is smaller than Mansfield and Camel's Hump, so it gets crowded. Those who are afraid of dogs or hike with a reactive dog may have even more difficulty here than on other high-traffic trails because of the two golden retrievers who are the mountain's unofficial mascots. While they are, by all accounts, Good Boys (and most hikers consider them a positive feature), take caution that they will be at the summit, off-leash and unattended, most days. Even if you time your hike to avoid crowds, they will probably be there.
