"Until recently, we’d never even heard of Moosalamoo. Yet there we were, snowshoeing like crazy and drinking gloppy Irish ale with the locals on St. Paddy’s Day. Located east of Middlebury between Route 125 to the north and Route 72 to the south the Moosalamoo region comprises 20,000 acres within the Green Mountain National Forest. Moosalamoo, they say, is an Abenaki Indian word meaning, “He trails the moose," or “the moose departs." Red-tailed hawks, black bear, peregrine falcons, and, of course, moose, are among the residents here. And the hiking! Our feet get twitchy just thinking about it. The more we hiked, the more we discovered still more super-inviting trailheads looping around the Brandon/Moosalamoo region of Vermont’s Green Mountains." Read more
