Nebraska Notch Trail Professional Reviews and Guides

"Vermont’s most famous face may be its highest peak—Mount Mansfield. At 4,393 feet its ridge looks a bit like a human profile, and specific features are given names of human parts, like nose, chin, forehead, and even Adam’s apple. Though this loop does not climb to the summit of the peak, it does utilize the Long Trail, which leads to the top. The Long Trail is a 270-mile-long hiking trail that runs from the Massachusetts-Vermont line to the Canadian border.

Maintained by the Green Mountain Club, it has some 175 miles of side trails, too. The Long Trail is actually the oldest long-distance hiking trail in the country, according to the Green Mountain Club. In winter sections of the trail are used for snowshoeing and skiing. Three trails make up this loop in the Mount Mansfield State Forest: Nebraska Notch Trail, the Long Trail, and the Overland Cross-Country Ski Trail. As a snowshoe trip, the loop is a moderate undertaking. To complete the entire loop as a backcountry skier, it is best to be at least at an intermediate level. Surface quality: Ungroomed, but packed by use."

"Two tours that share a trailhead showcase the excellent skiing on the west side of Mount Mansfi eld. The fi rst is a ski tour into the dramatic and scenic Nebraska Notch. The second tour is on the Overland Trail, an excellent trail and glade ski. The Overland Trail leads to the Devil’s Dishpan, a striking rock cleft on the ridge."
