Hikes and Ice Cream - Stowe Car Camp Weekend

Trip dates: Friday, September 20, 2019 12:00 AM to Sunday, September 22, 2019 12:00 AM

We're headed up to the Green Mountains! Join us Friday - Sunday, September 20-22 , for a fun car camp weekend and an opportunity to enjoy the best hikes in Vermont. On Friday night, we have reserved a campsite at Little River State Park in Woodbury, VT. Although not required, we recommend joining us Friday night since the travel time from Boston is approx. 3 hrs 45 min. On Saturday, we will hike Vermont's highest peak, Mt. Mansfield (4,393 ft), on a 6.3-mile loop and an elevation gain of about 2,800 ft. On Sunday, we'll hike Camel's Hump (4,083 feet) - Vermont's highest never-developed peak, for a shorter hike of 4.2-miles and an elevation gain of about 2,300 ft . Both summits offer stunning views, which on clear days include Lake Champlain, the Adirondacks and distant views of the White Mountains. With the beautiful Vermont foliage starting to turn, we'll enjoy two fantastic hikes with full restroom facilities at the campsite. It's hard to imagine what could possibly make this weekend better, but how about a visit to the Ben & Jerry's Factory Store and Headquarters, only 15 minutes away from our campsite! Please note that this trip will be cancelled in the event of bad of weather.
