Mt. Mansfield Ridge Professional Guide

Detailed Trail Description from our Guidebook

"Mt. Mansfield is the tallest peak in Vermont. Although this trek costs a little money, the few hours spent traversing the ridge provide unparalleled views without the difficult ascent up the mountain, allowing you to enjoy an afternoon exploring Vermont from a unique alpine environment.

As the highest peak in Vermont, Mt. Mansfield naturally has
amazing views, but this hike also provides a beautiful walk
through the alpine environment over rocky slabs for a truly
unique experience. Although the mountain is far from wild
(television and radio towers adorn the top, and Stowe Mountain Resort ski trails cover the east side), the easy access makes it a great trip for hikers of all ages and abilities."

"After an easy drive, this ridge-top trail winds through alpine tundra to the highest point in Vermont for breathtaking views—all for minimal effort. Unlike most of the trips in this book, which depend 100 percent on human power to get to the final destination, this option gives people of all abilities the chance to experience the alpine splendor of Vermont’s highest peak. Driving the historic Auto Toll Road does require a hefty toll; check with Stowe Mountain Resort for current prices. While parking at a trailhead at the bottom of a mountain is usually far less expensive if not free, paying the toll to get up the road has its advantages and may be the only way some families will be able to experience this part of the world. Driving the road is an exhilarating experience in itself, as it winds its way up the steep flanks of Mount Mansfield." Read more
