The Best State Parks in Vermont to Explore
The lush forests, waterfalls, and valleys of our countryside are just waiting to be explored, and these state parks in Vermont are fantastic destinations for a day trip.
- Allis State Park: The Bear Nature Trail at this state park in Vermont is under a mile offering pretty scenic views, but the best vista is from the top of the fire tower, overlooking the Green Mountains and all the way to the White Mountains of New Hampshire.
- Granville Gulf Reservation State Forest: This area is best known for its beautiful scenes of Moss Glen Falls with its 80-foot drop along Route 100. The most popular draw is a short hike to the falls for an up-close look at this natural wonder.
- Branbury State Park: This is one of the state parks in Vermont that sits along Lake Dunmore’s sandy shores, a popular location for swimming and picnicking. There’s also a great selection of hiking trails that vary in difficulty.
- Camel’s Hump State Park: As the largest of all the state parks in Vermont, Camel’s Hump is one of the highest peaks in the state and a popular destination for experienced outdoor enthusiasts. A segment of the Long Trail (a 273-mile trail spanning the entire state) traverses the 4,000-foot high mountain known as Camel’s Hump. The hike to the summit, which starts after about a 40 minute drive from the B&B, is about 5 hours round trip and is considered difficult, so make sure you’re up for the trek! The views from the top on a good day are amazing.
- Mad River Path: There’s a collection of trails that run in segments between Warren and Moretown, creating wonderful walking paths for exploring the nearby valley and wilderness. These trails are well-maintained and easy to follow for a lovely stroll in the woods or along the river.
