Trailhead

From Barton, drive south on VT-5/Lake Street for 4.5 miles. Turn right onto Wheeler Mountain Road and continue for 1.4 miles. Turn right off the road into the parking area where the trailhead is located. 

The Wheeler Pond Trail shares a trailhead with the Moose Mountain Trail, so be sure to follow signs for Wheeler Pond.

Description

This half-mile trail starts at the Moose Mountain Trailhead and goes around the south end of Wheeler Pond to the two camps, owned and operated by The Green Mountain Club, located on the west side of Wheeler Pond. Along the trail, hikers have a great view of Wheeler Pond with Wheeler Mountain in the background. From the cabins, hikers can turn left to climb up the Gnome Stairs Trail, named so because of the small step-down falls on the side of the trail.
