Mount Philo State Park
From Burlington, take Spear Street south. Turn right to go west on Irish Spring Hill Road. Turn left to go south onto Mount Philo Road. Continue straight. The Mount Philo State Park parking lot will be on your left.
A short, moderate hike: it will take about 1-1.5 hours and will provide you with some spectacular views. There are picnic benches, a bathroom and vending machine (open seasonally), campsites, and an enclosed pavilion at the top.
Dogs are allowed but should be on leash; owners must clean up after their dogs.

Leave No Trace Principle
Plan Ahead and Prepare
Know your limits – it’s okay to turn back. Your home is the ultimate destination, not the summit.
