  3. The Burrows Trail is a great way to explore one of Vermont's most unique peaks, Camel's Hump. It's also one of the few Green Mountain summits with a clear view above treeline.

  4. Snake Mountain is one of Vermont's best peaks, thanks to standing alone high above the Champlain Valley. You'll get plenty of reward for a modest day's work in the form of exceptional views.

  5. At just about two miles, Sterling Pond Trail is short, accessible, scenic, and very close to the tourist-friendly town of Stowe and its many resorts. This makes it a popular hike.

  6. At 3,538’ Mount Hunger is considerably shorter than Mansfield, but a steep, fun climb and wide open rock summit give it the flavor of a 4,000+ footer. Just shy of four miles roundtrip, a 2,300’ elevation gain means you’ll be working almost the whole time.

  7. Rising above the heart of the Mad River Valley, two peaks south of Camel’s Hump by way of the Long Trail, Burnt Rock is one of Vermont’s most interesting day hikes—mostly because of a few memorable rock formations near the top.
