Highlights

  • Mount Mansfield is the highest mountain in Vermont.
  • When viewed from the east or west, this mountain has the appearance of a (quite elongated) human profile, with distinct forehead, nose, lips, chin, and Adam's apple. These features are most distinct when viewed from the east; unlike most human faces, "The Chin" is the highest point.
  • Mount Mansfield is one of three spots in Vermont where true alpine tundra survives from the Ice Ages. A few acres exist on Camel's Hump and Mount Abraham to the south, but Mount Mansfield's summit still holds about 200 acres.
  • There are many hiking trails, including the famous Long Trail, which traverses the main ridgeline.
  • In addition, the east flank of the mountain is used by the Stowe Mountain Resort for winter skiing.
  • A toll road (about four miles, steep, mostly unpaved, with several hairpin turns) climbs from the Stowe Base Lodge to "The Nose".
