The Green Mountain National Forest In Vermont Is A Big Secluded Treasure
The Green Mountain National Forest, while itself isn’t secluded, has many nooks and crannies that are secluded treasures in their own right. The 400,000-acre forest is located in southwestern and central Vermont and has an exceptional variety of terrain, trails, wildlife, and wooded areas. From epic waterfalls to crazy panoramic lookouts, and hiking to rock climbing, the Green Mountain National Forest has so much to offer every visitor. Both the Long Trail and the Appalachian Trail run through this grand and impressive forest, while wildlife abounds in the woodlands and hikers wander through this vast, secluded forest.
Note: due to the ‘stay home order’ issued by Governor Phil Scott, the forest and/or some hiking trails, recreational and camping areas may be temporarily closed.
