What's the most beautiful hike in Vermont?
Being as though there are almost 4.6 million acres of forest to go around, there is definitely a lot of hiking in Vermont. One of the most beautiful is Camel’s Hump in Duxbury. It’s a six-mile out-and-back trail and will take you to the third highest peak in Vermont with various additional extraordinary views of the mountains and state. If you want to see the Green Mountain State’s very highest peak, Mount Mansfield, take the 4.2-mile out-and-back trail to Mount Hunger. This one is a bit challenging as Mount Hunger sits at 3,538 feet, but it’s definitely worth it once you get those all-encompassing views. Oh, and there are also some waterfalls and even a swimming hole to jump into along the way!
