Chipman Hill, the most prominent geographic feature in the town of Middlebury, has an elevation that is approximately 360 feet above that of the town center and affords the hiker wonderful views. In the 1940s and 50s, Chipman Hill was the site of Middlebury College's downhill ski area, and even featured a ski jump, the remains of which can still be found. Since then, the forest has regenerated and the area is a favorite of walkers, hikers, and mountain bikers.
The Trail Around Middlebury (TAM) follows alongsome of the Chipman Hill trails.
Access is from Springside Street, High Street, or from the TAM trailhead off of Seminary Street Extension, just east of the Co-operative Insurance building.
