Mount Hunger

Mount Hunger Professional Review and Guide

"“The mountaintop is one of the pleasantest places of earth, and will be visited so long as people inhabit the country.” Mount Hunger’s rocky domed top was a favorite with hikers even before Middlesex resident William Chapin penned this thought in 1880, and has remained so ever since."

"This strenuous hike on a wet trail is best for more experienced hikers, and it leads to amazing views on the bald summit. Mount Hunger’s prominence over the nearby landscape and its bald summit make this more difficult trip well worth the effort for children over 8.

Though it’s just over 2.0 miles one-way, we’ve seen many crying 4-year-olds on this trail; your older, more aggressive hikers, however, will get a great sense of accomplishment from this short yet challenging hike. Combined with nearby swimming holes in Stowe or Bolton, this can make for a positively great day. Also: bring some bug spray if visiting in June or July; the blackflies on the summit at that time of year can send you scurrying back down the trail."
