Mount Mansfield Is A Challenging Hike In Vermont That Will Make Your Stomach Drop
There is no shortage of stunning hikes and gorgeous mountain views in Vermont, a state renowned for its natural beauty. But if you’re looking for a hike that will truly make your stomach drop, we recommend the Mount Mansfield Loop Trail, which will take you along the highest peak in the state of Vermont at 4,393 feet tall.
Mount Mansfield is in the Underhill State Park, located in Chittenden County within the Green Mountains. The trail, which is a 7.3- mile loop, is recommended only for experienced hikers, as there are a few tricky parts along the way, specifically at the Maple Ridge Trail. In one section, there is a rock wall to climb with only a few grips and toeholds. Then there is a chasm about six feet deep and three feet wide you must jump over to continue on the trail — so make sure you’re up for the challenge and aren’t hiking in bad weather.
Basically, Mount Mansfield is a hiking enthusiast’s dream.
