Mount Mansfield Trail Professional Guide
Detailed Trail Description from our Guidebook
"Just the fact that Mount Mansfield is the tallest peak in Vermont makes it a magnet for hikers. About 40,000 people make it to the top of this landmark each year, so it is wisest to take your turn midweek, especially if you are hiking with a dog.
Viewed from the east or west, the profile of the 2-mile summit ridge resembles the face of a man looking skyward. The prominent points of the ridge are commonly known from south to north as The Forehead, The Nose, The Upper Lip, The Lower Lip, The Chin, and Adam’s Apple. The Chin, at 4393 feet, is the true summit."
