The rocky perch at the summit over Haystack Pond is a perfect picnic spot.Haystack Mountain is a common name for peaks in the Northeast. The name comes from the mountain’s shape, which resembles a giant stack of hay. During the 1800s much of Vermont’s woodlands were cleared for farming. While most of those fields have grown back into forest, and the remaining farmers now make large bales instead view of Haystack Pond from the summit of Haystack Mountain."
