Great area year around, fishing, kayaking, snowshoeing. Nice scenery, light traffic, great spot to capture a sunset.

Great trail, I did the loop with the stone stairs, it was a lot of fun! Easy enough for a 16 lb poodle to do, but though enough to get your heart pumping and keep you warm in 20 degree weather. (with the proper gear of course ;-) ) I can't wait to do it again! :-)

Monroe Skyline, Lincoln Gap to Appalachian Gap
by Lance Clarke

I hiked this northbound as part of my Long Trail thru-hike this past summer. It was one of my favourite parts of my trip. Climbing up Abe was rocky and steep at times, definitely work, but the work was rewarded with a wonderful view at the top! Then it was ridge walking for most of the rest of the way. One of the most memorable parts was the descent into Appalachian Gap, a rather challenging bit of hiking including ladders and rebar.
Not an easy trail, but it is a very rewarding trail.

Good, well-used network of trails in a woodlands park near Burlington, VT. Views of the lake, forested paths, and cliffs. Nice spot to walk your dog, see some trees, and get a little exercise very close to town. Accessible year round.

Decent little campground but nowhere near the Brownsville trail lol; actually the Futures trail starts inside the park but thats the longest way to the summit and parallels the auto road. The Windsor and Brownsville trails are few miles down the road.

This trail starts at the lake Beachhouse and continues up to the Robert Frost home. The round trip is about 4.2 miles. I would strongly recommend this trail it's well marked and has a good combination of level and hills.

A long hike around the pond in the melting ice and snow on Christmas Day. Good views of the water from the west and south sides. Would do it again.

Lovely, easy trail... even in snow. Lots of different types of trees on this hike down to the water.

My favorite of the Ascutney trails, this one has lots of views, a rock quarry and several trail features that I enjoy like where the trail negotiates a large rock wall. More technical than Cascade Falls and less strenuous than the Windsor.
