Allis State Park In Vermont Is So Well-Hidden, It Feels Like One Of The State’s Best Kept Secrets
Vermont is filled with some of the most beautiful parks in the country, so it makes sense that some parks fall through the cracks. However, that definitely doesn’t mean they should: Just consider Allis State Park, which might be the second state park developed in Vermont, back in 1928, but it rarely gets the attention it deserves.
Allis State Park, which is located on the summit of Bear Hill Mountain, has beautiful trails that are fun to hike through all year round (colorful leaves await you in the fall, new flowers blooming can be spotted in the spring, it’s so dang green in the summer, and the snowy trees in the colder months will make you feel like you just stumbled upon a winter wonderland) and it boasts a lookout tower with incredible views of the Killington, Pico, and Mt Ascutney peaks, Camel’s Hump and Mt. Mansfield to the north, and the White Mountains of New Hampshire. Plus, it’s much quieter and less-traveled than other Vermont parks!
Just travel to Brookfield in central Vermont to visit one of Vermont’s hidden gems.
