From the Codding Hollow Trailhead, the Long Trail heads north on an old logging road before veering upward on a narrower path. After just under two miles, the trail emerges on to the ledges of Laraway Lookout. The lookout provides outstanding views to the west and south. In winter, water flowing down the cliffs creates interesting ice formations. The treed summit is 0.4 miles past the lookout.

Respect trail closures.

Trailhead Information

To get to the trailhead, head east on Codding Hollow Road from VT-109. Continue on Codding Hollow Road past turns for Beals Hill, Clark and Locke Roads. Winter parking and parking for low-clearance vehicles is on the right, 2.4 miles from VT-109. In the summer, higher-clearance vehicles can continue 0.1 miles past the first trailhead and then turn left into the parking area. 

Codding Hollow Road is open to OHV traffic. Please be aware and respectful.

Do not park along the road between the two parking areas. If you have a higher-clearance vehicle, please park in the second lot.
