Trail Activity
3.9 miles, Network
Fayston (VT)
Packed Earth/Dirt, Snow, Ungroomed


The Mill Brook Trail is a hiking oriented section of the network with sometimes steep, rocky, and wet parts. From VT-17 at the east end of the trail, the trail winds up through the woods and across streams to Marble Hill Rd. It then connects to the many trails in Chase Brook Town Forest and German Flats Rd by way of Harris Hill Rd. North of German Flats Road, the Mill Brook Trail is co-located with the Catamount Trail for approximately 1 mile, at which point non-winter users must turn around. Skiers and snowshoers may continue on the Catamount Trail past the Mad River Barn and across Rt. 17 to Phen Basin and beyond.
