What’s the most beautiful hike in Vermont?

If you’re a fan of insects, you’re sure to find a few along the state’s hiking trails. One hike that shouldn’t be missed is the Sterling Pond Trail in Stowe. One of the most popular trails in Smugglers’ Notch State Park, the trail is rated as moderate and is roughly 2 miles. Though stunning year-round, it’s an especially popular hike in summer since it leads to Sterling Pond, a lovely mountaintop pond perfect for swimming and fishing. Hamilton Falls Trail in Jamaica is another beautiful hike in Vermont that you don’t want to overlook. An out-and-back trail that stretches nearly 6 miles, it winds past dramatic stone formations and several waterfalls, including Hamilton Falls. Though stunning, Hamilton Falls can be somewhat dangerous. You should NOT attempt to cross the steep, slippery rocks or swim in Hamilton Falls, as several people have lost their lives swimming there. Don’t worry, though. There’s an array of safer swimming holes in the area.

What are the most well known parks in Vermont?

There are tons of great parks in Vermont, including Marsh-Billings-Rockefeller National Historical Park. Located in Woodstock, the park was established in order to preserve the Marsh-Billings house, dairy farm, and forest established by F. Billings. Park-goers should start their visit at the park’s Visitor’s Center. Camel’s Hump State Park is another popular park in Vermont. It’s also The Green Mountain State’s largest state park. Of course, its size isn’t its only distinguishing factor. The grounds are brimming with beauty, including Camel’s Hump, which, at 4,085 feet, is the third highest mountain in Vermont.
