White Rocks Cliff Professional Guide

Detailed Trail Description from our Guidebook

"White Rocks Cliff, reached by a short side trail from the A.T., is a popular dayhike destination. The expansive view is the reason why so many come here. Directly below the wide quartzite cliffs, a talus slope bordered by a spruce forest leads the eye into the deep valley carved by the erosive waters of Otter Creek. The small town of Wallingford lies to the northwest along the banks of the creek. The Adirondacks of New York are on the western horizon.

Walk westward a few yards to the A.T., cross VT 140, and use a bridge to get across Roaring Brook. Step over Sugar Hill Road in 0.3 mile and ascend through a hemlock forest to cross Bully Brook. Stay left on the A.T. where the Keewaydin Trail joins from the right at 1 mile. A blue-blazed trail on the left at 1.8 miles leads to Greenwall Shelter in 0.2 mile."
