Trailhead

Parking for the Howe Hill trails is in the parking lot next to the East Poultney Baptist Church on the green in the center of the village of East Poultney.  The parking lot may be full on Sunday mornings during church service.  To access the trails from the parking lot walk south across the Poultney River on to Thrall Rd.  The trails start at the Howe Hill sign on the left side of Thrall Rd. about a quarter mile from the parking lot.

Description

This trail network represents a partnership between two generous landowners and Slate Valley Trails.  Howe Hill trails are open to walking, hiking, running, and snowshoeing when the snow falls.  There are some short steep climbs on Laird's Loop, some of which may be dangerous in icy conditions.  The trails consist of Laird's Loop (1.9 miles round-trip) and the Upper Loop (1.0 miles). Please wear bright colors during all Vermont hunting seasons.
