Trail Activity
Hiking Snowshoeing
2.3 miles, One Way
Lemington (VT)
Packed Earth/Dirt, Rock/Ledge, Boardwalk/Bog Bridging, Grass/Meadow
Permitted on leash


This rugged trail varies in terrain from open meadow to steep rocky hill to logging road. After the trail follows a logging road for a time, then crosses a long log bridge, it begins a persistent, rocky climb that gains most of the elevation of the trail. The climb eventually levels out and the trail winds through a spruce-fir forest to the top. At the top, the foundation and chimney of a burned down fire warden's cabin still remain, as well as the fully functional fire tower, which offers excellent views of both Vermont and New Hampshire.
