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 in Vermont, 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.

The Clarendon Gorge Appalachian Trailhead is a wonderful hike with plenty of fascinating views and landscapes. Crossing the suspension bridge is a fun element to the trail that most hikes do not have.
