Bromley is a good, solid hike but neither too long nor too steep to preclude bringing the whole family. There are fantastic views from the top and an overlook just below the top.

The Spruce Peak Trail up Bromley Mountain is the route the Appalachian Trail (A.T.) follows. There’s a good-size parking area right off the north side of VT 30, so parking shouldn’t be an issue. This is also the parking spot for the Vermont Association of Snow Travelers (VAST) snowmobile trail network, so it’s likely to be busy year-round.

A moderately graded trail leads you along a brook, past an overnight shelter, and finally to open vistas. Bromley Mountain makes for an excellent hike for young hikers ready for a walk of 5.5 miles. Unlike older mountain footpaths that take the shortest (and often most challenging) route between two points, this recreational trail follows a more gradual grade that holds up better against erosion than steep
slopes.

Following the route of the Long Trail, the trip leads to panoramic views on top of the mountain. From Memorial Day to Labor Day, the ski area runs many summer adventure activities and chairlift rides; in May or September through November, the area is less crowded. You can also opt to turn this into an overnight by staying at the new Bromley Mountain Shelter (2.3 miles).

A gradual yet steady climb through a hardwood forest to a viewing platform at the top of the Bromley Ski Area. Passes one of the newer lodges on the Appalachian Trail (AT)/Long Trail (LT) in Vermont. There are two out-and-back approaches to Bromley, both on the AT/LT (white blazes).

The approach from the south is 0.3 mile longer, but it has some interesting points along the way; namely, Bromley Brook, a nice place to pause if you are hiking with a dog, and Bromley Shelter, where you can spend the night. Hiking up Bromley Mountain feels easier than the distance might suggest. It is a good option if you are not quite up to either of the two nearby giants, Mount Equinox and Stratton Mountain, but still want a hike to an expansive view.
