Mount PhiloTrail Professional Guide
Detailed Trail Description from our Guidebook
"Mount Philo is the centerpiece of Mount Philo State Park, Vermont’s oldest state park. It was established in 1924 when Frances Humphreys gave 150 acres to the state. The hiking trails were added much later, in 1996,by the Vermont Youth Conservation Corps.
Mount Philo is a midget by normal mountain standards, but it towers over the middle of the Lake Champlain Valley, offering exceptional views of the lake and the Adirondacks beyond. The hike gets an “easy” rating because it is short and low, but it is not wimpy."
