A short, steep hike that’s a favorite among locals and that ends at a spectacular bald mountaintop. Mount Hunger is a perennial favorite among hikers in the Stowe area because it is relatively short and has a dazzling view from its open rock summit. It is one of the primary peaks in the Worcester Range, the next ridge east of the Mount Mansfieldridge, and thus is a terrific vantage point for an unobstructed view of the entire Mansfield profile (Adams Apple, Chin, Nose, Forehead). It is also a fun hike because the upper half of the climb has many boulders and ledges to scramble up. There are several ways to approach the summit of Mount Hunger. The Waterbury Trail (blue blazes) is both the shortest and the most vertical route.
