A vigorous half-day hike to the premier summit of the Worcester Range. A popular trail, with 8,000 hikers each year, Mount Hunger boasts the most picturesque summit in the range of mountains with the best location in the state. Part of the isolated Worcester chain that parallels stylish Stowe Valley and more famous peaks to the west, Mount Hunger’s windswept crown unveils an intimate portrait of the Green Mountains’ northern core. From Abraham to Ellen to Camel’s Hump, from Mansfield to Whiteface Mountain, the crenellated mass of Vermont’s highest peaks stand in stark relief just across a glacial valley. Remember this summit for sensational views. The adventure begins on a gravelly trail that weaves beyond the parking lot through woods of dense new growth.

Awesome snowshoe trail. Be careful above treeline, though. The winds were whipping and it was much, much colder.

Quite strenuous but the views from the top are worth all the effort. The trail is well maintained and very accessible. The temperature difference between top and base is quite noticeable. Nice place to go hiking with the kids.
