Mount Hunger Trail Professional Review and Guide
"Mount Hunger’s open south summit is well-known for its fabulous views of notable Vermont and New Hampshire peaks. The climb is steady and relatively long, but stream crossings, cascades, and ledgy scrambles break up the trip. Inappropriate for most preschoolers, this trip will appeal to older kids who can appreciate the dizzying panoramas.
The Waterbury Trail begins as a wide path heading eastward and soon curls right (southeast) and narrows to rise gently through mature, mixed woods. How about having a scavenger hunt? Tell each child to look for a feather, a seed, a berry, and a smooth rock. In 0.15 mile, the trail bisects mossy granite outcroppings. Do all types of moss feel the same?"
