This is a pleasant hike through an airy hardwood forest along a cascading brook to a historic fire tower with a 360-degree view. The Green Mountain Club recommends staying off the Long Trail during mud season to protect it from excessive erosion, which makes Okemo Mountain, also called Ludlow Mountain, a particularly good choice if you have the urge to hike before Memorial Day. The Healdville Trail (blue blazes), which is the main hiking trail up Okemo Mountain, is neither steep nor overly wet. It is located on the northern side of the mountain away from the ski area, so it feels like a true backcountry experience.
