Short hike on the Long Trail to the open rocky top of Vermont’s northernmost ski area with stellar views into southern Quebec. At 0.9 mile, there is a break in the trees to the left, with a nice view of the neighboring peaks to the north and into Canada. Enter the woods on the LT–North (white blazes), immediately passing the Atlas Valley Shelter, a four-person lean-to that was built in 1967 from wood supplied by the Atlas timber company. It was not intended for overnight use, but it works in a pinch. The main trail starts out as much stream as footpath after a heavy rain, but the footing is easy. It soon begins to climb, getting increasingly steeper and becoming more rocky and well-worn.
