Vermont State Parks' Top Five Parks for Hiking

Vermont is known as the Green Mountain State and Vermont State Parks are a great way to experience the mountains up close. Some of Vermont's highest peaks are located in state parks, like Mt. Mansfield and Camel's Hump. Other mountains like Mt. Ascutney, Mt. Olga and Spruce Mountain have fire towers or observation towers that provide exceptional views.

Vermont State Parks offer a variety of hiking experiences, from 1/4 mile nature trails to the lofty summit of Mount Mansfield and a host of options in between.
