Description

1.8 mile trail (one-way) begins with a gentle ascent through Wilmarth Woods and steepens on carriage road to Snake Mountain summit. 

Other Information

This preserve is one of the largest low-elevation, mature forest stands in the Champlain Valley. The soils here are deep and rich, and the mesic red oak-northern hardwood forest is one of the finest in western Vermont. Wilmarth Woods flanks the 1,215-acre Snake Mountain Wildlife Management Area where there are eight rare plants and two known uncommon species, in addition to views of the Champlain Valley and the Adirondacks from the 1,287-foot Snake Mountain summit.
