Middle Mountain Trail
View Connector Trails
The new route begins across from the Hurricane Road on VT-114 north of Island Pond. To locate the parking area from Island Pond, drive north on VT-114 for 7.7 miles. Turn right into the parking area across from Hurricane Road.
This newly-constructed trail starts at VT-114 using portions of the historic Unknown Pond Trail and climbing out of the valley along the 'south arm' of Middle Mountain. The trail starts on Unknown Pond Trail, then in 1.3 miles becomes Middle Mountain Trail. About halfway to the summit, continue straight past an old, unused trail spur. The trail then climbs to the summit of Middle Mountain, from which hikers can continue on the trail to descend the north side of the mountain and join with the Gore Mountain Trail.
