Brousseau Mountain Trail
From Norton, drive east on VT-114 N for 2.9 miles. Turn right onto Brousseau Mountain Road and continue to the gated terminus. Parking is limited, so please pull off the road completely without blocking the gate or camp access. From the gate continue straight up the access road, where shortly, trailhead signs will appear on the left.
The trail begins by taking hikers through an open meadow before leading into a recently cut forest and winding through the wood for a time. Near the summit, the trail winds over granite bedrock and then to the forested peak. A short distance further, there is a cliff lookout that provide extensive views to the south and east.
ATTENTION: Brousseau Mountain is one of the few nesting sites of the endangered Peregrine Falcon. In order to avoid the spring-summer incubation period when the birds and their young are most sensitive, hiking is prohibited before August 1st.
