What are the most beautiful hikes in Vermont?

Those who live in Vermont are fortunate that we get to call this place home. Nature and hiking opportunities abound in the Green Mountain State. In fact, Vermont has some of the greatest hiking trails in all of New England (our opinion). Our choice for the most beautiful hike in Vermont is the hike up to the summit of Mt. Mansfield, which offers some of the most spectacular views of the VT landscape. If you are interested in hiking Mt. Mansfield, we suggest taking the Sunset Ridge Trail; the trail is well marked and it’s easily accessible from Underhill State Park. Some more spectacularly beautiful hikes that are worth considering are 1. Mount Pisgah Trail, 2. Camel’s Hump Trail, 3. Lye Brook Falls Trail. Happy exploring!
