  • Named after the French Les Monts Verts, meaning "the Green Mountains". The Green Mountains, a spine of peaks stretching north-south for 280 miles, dominate the state's geography.
  • The 5 peaks over 4,000 ft all lie in the Green Mountains. The highest is Mt. Mansfield, home of ski area Stowe.
  • The rugged, 272-mile long Long Trail crests the spine of the Green Mountains from Massachusetts to Canada, traversing the summit of over 50 peaks along the way.
  • The lower-elevation Taconic Mountains lie in the southwest corner of the state, extending up from Massachusetts.
