Trailhead

Parking can be found in the gravel pit parking area off of VT-102, just north of the Lemington-Colebrook Bridge. The trailhead is located at the back of the large gravel pit.

To get to the parking area from Lemington, drive north on VT-102 for 3.9 miles, then turn left into the large parking area. 

Description

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.

Leave No Trace Principle

Dispose of Waste Properly

Keep the Twin States (Vermont & New Hampshire) green and clean! Pick up trash, even if it's not yours. Leave soon-to-be trash like excess packaging, stickers, and twist ties at home.
