Mount Philo State Park

5425 Mt Philo Rd.

This quick and easy trail is just a little over a half mile to the top and offers spectacular view of the Adirondack Mountains and the Lake Champlain Valley. This is Vermont's oldest state park, created in 1924!

Great spot for beginning hikers. We go regularly with visitors because of the rewarding views. The service road will also cut down on walking for the feeble visitor, but the best views still require some light scrambling, so it wasnt great for my unsteady older parent. This place is a great "bottom rung" for those who are peak-curious. Busy on fall weekends though, and the road does close after seasons'end, I think.

Nice mountain with some decent trails. Good for a short hike on a nice day.

Great hike! My 4 year old hasn't stopped taking about it. Amazing views from the top. Fun for the whole family!

The hike to the summit is relatively quick but difficult enough that it interests hikers of all skill sets. You can also drive to the top if you'd like to enjoy the view without the sweat. The view from the summit and the various look outs are stunning, and there are a few chairs and picnic tables at the top so you can have a rest or a picnic with a view. It's definitely worth the $4 to get in.

A drop dead beautiful view of Lake Champlain and the Adirondack Mountains. During the summer there is an access road that can be driven up to the top. There are also plenty of hiking trails available and it is a short hike to the top.
