Wat je gaat doen

A variety of hikes to choose from including easy, moderate, and more challenging. We can hike to some glorious viewpoints overlooking Lake Champlain and the Adirondack mountains or stay low in the wonderful forests of the Green Mountains and the Champlain Valley. An example of one of the more challenging hikes is a section of the Long Trail beginning at Appalachian Gap (elevation 2,375 ft) in the Camel's Hump State Park. We will hike to the top of Stark's Nest (3,618 ft). The trail begins with moderate terrain through Vermont hardwood trees (Maples, Birch, Beech) and ascends into the conifers (Pine, Fur, Spruce, etc) Along the way we will look for signs of wildlife squirrels and butterflies to Moose and Bobcats). There are some excellent views north along the spine of the Green Mountains to Camel's Hump and Mount Mansfield and across Lake Champlain to the Adirondack mountains. At Stark's Nest there is an excellent view (weather permitting) across to the White Mountains of New Hampshire. The hike to Stark's Nest is 1.6 miles (3.2 miles round trip). Although it is a climb (1,235' ascent) and there is some steep terrain, we will hike at a leisurely pace with plenty of stops to enjoy the forest and the views and catch our breath.
