Mount Philo State Park

Mount Philo State Park Professional Review and Guide

"A barrier-free stroll on a drive-up summit, suitable for any family. Mount Philo brings back memories of those movies from my youth where daring explorers climbed a at-topped mountain lost in prehistoric time. Not exactly Jurassic Park, but the same general idea. Tyrannosaurus rex doesn’t live in Vermont, but visitors to Mount Philo ascend an ancient island, crossing gravel beaches that rimmed an arctic sea some 10,000 years ago.

Just like the movies, this self-contained summit survives
in a world of its own, but campgrounds, picnic areas, and magnificent Lake Champlain views stand in for giant monsters as entertainment suited to a family crowd.There really isn’t much hiking to be done at Mount Philo, although a few hardy
folks trudge up the auto road."
