Oak View Hill Trail
From Route 2: At the 4-way stop in Williston Village Center, go south on Oak Hill Road. The trailhead parking area is on the west (right) side of Oak Hill Road, a few miles from the 4-way stop.
From I-89: Take Williston Exit 12. Go west towards Hinesburg at St. George Road/VT-2A; go 0.8 miles to Creamery Road. Turn left at Creamery Road; go 2 miles. Take a slight right at Oak Hill Road; go almost 1.5 miles to small parking area on right.
The Oak View Hill Trail passes along a public trail easement across the privately owned Isham Family Farm. This farm has been operated by the Isham Family for many generations and was conserved by the Town and the Vermont Land Trust in 2002. Formerly a jersey cow dairy farm, the Isham Family Farm has now diversified to include maple sugaring, berry picking, vegetables, and even Christmas trees.
The 1.2 mile loop trail at Oak View Hill passes by some of the Isham's farm fields, as well as through their working sugarbush. Trail rises slowly from fields into the woods. Highlights include a beautiful small pond and a small wooded knoll from which you can see wonderful views of Camel's Hump and Mount Mansfield on clear days. Please respect the fact that this trail passes through private land and do not stray from the marked trail.
