Green Mountain National Forest

The Green Mountain National Forest is the monster of national parks in the state, covering some 350,000 acres (50% of all public lands in the state) as it follows the backbone of the state from the Massachusetts border to the Appalachian Gap. Obviously with that much land you'll find a wide range of terrain, including mountains/ski areas (Stratton, Sugarbush), beaver ponds, streams and 512 miles of trails, including Native American trails, logging roads, 19th century carriage paths and sections of the Long and Appalachian Trails.

The Forest is made up of numerous wilderness areas, including Lye Brook, BreadLoaf, Bristol Cliffs Wilderness and George D. Aiken. The Forest offers four-seasons of fun regardless of whether one wishes to mountain bike, hike, ski or just observe foliage.

You can check out a large map of the Green Mountain National Forest here.

More information can be obtained through their Rutland office at 802-747-6700.
