Trailhead

From Tafts Corners in Williston, take Route 2A south 1.5 miles. Turn left onto Old Creamery Road. After 0.75 miles, turn right onto Sunset Hill Road. Follow this road for another 0.75 miles to find a small parking area on the left. The trailhead is on the right side of the road.

Description

Parts of the trail pass over private land along a 10-foot wide easement corridor. Bikes and motorized vehicles are not allowed on the trails. This is a wonderful hike for families. Wooded trail passes over bridges, around boulders, and culminates in an open summit with western views toward Lake Champlain. Great picnic spot with bench on top. The trail crosses snowmobile trails, but is well marked.

This is a one way trail, though you may return via a few steps below the summit where there is access to quiet Five Tree Hill Road. A short walk with a right on Sunset Hill Road leads back to your vehicle.

The Five Tree Hill trail can be linked to the Mud Pond Conservation Area trail to form a 4.5 mile hiking corridor. Hiking and walking only, no bicycling or motorized vehicles allowed. Parking is available on Sunset Road.
