The Magnificent Bridge Trail In Vermont That Will Lead You To A Hidden Overlook
If you are looking for a great hike to take, try out the Clarendon Gorge Appalacian Trailhead via the Long Trail. With a suspension bridge and hidden views of the Clarendon Gorge, this trail will quench your thirst for adventurous hiking. Located in southern Vermont, not far from Rutland, the Clarendon Gorge trail is a 14.6-mile loop and is considered to be on the difficult side. But, if you just want to see the gorge and cross the suspension bridge, that is also possible; Clarendon Gorge and the bridge are accessible via VT Route 103. For the best trail conditions, hike between April – September. But if you are eager to take this hike now, the snow-filled gorge will also be eye-catching. Either way, you cannot go wrong.
