Vermont's magnificent mountains & trails welcome visitors to outdoor adventure

Let’s agree: getting outdoors in Vermont is a ticket halfway to heaven. Vermonters know this, and some of them offer lodgings and services that offer convenience and a giant step toward a wonderful outdoor adventure in Vermont’s mountains and countryside. Among the offerings are inns with hiking trails for all fitness levels, and a visit at the day’s end to a gorgeous spa, where your muscles can be soaked or pummeling to perfection. Another outdoor adventure haven in Vermont is a camp where young, middle, and older generations can enjoy the outdoors together, doing sports, crafts, musical activities, and traditional camping. Swimming, tennis, and other daytime fun fades to evening campfires and well-earned sleep in a lodge, tent, or cabin.

See VT Farm Life on a Walk Through Woods and Maple Groves

Vermont is a place of outdoor people and farm life, but if you also like shopping, local history, and unique crafts, you will find all of these on your visit to Morse Farm Maple Sugarworks in Montpelier. Burr Morse, the eighth generation of a family that has farmed this maple grove, greets visitors with tours of the sugarhouse, multimedia displays at a theater in a woodshed, a museum of Vermont farm life, and a country store with plenty of maple treats, gifts, and one-of-a-kind crafts to carry or mail back home. A gentle trail leads right to the “sugarbush” (maple grove). The trail is inhabited by fun folk characters carved by Morse. Sugaring season is February to April, but this theater of Vermont outdoor life is open year-round.

Captivating Vermont inns, like the state itself, celebrate the great outdoors

Think of Vermont and outdoor adventure comes to mind first. It’s no surprise that two charming inns continue the state’s tradition of celebrating the beauty of the Green Mountains here. At the Grafton Inn, dating back to 1801, a natural swimming pond, biking and hiking trails, an Outdoor Adventure Center, tennis, and fishing for the kids in a stocked trout pond draw families and couples here. Nearby activities include mountain biking, hiking, canoeing, skiing in the forest, snowshoeing and sleigh rides. At the Rabbit Hill Inn, ask about the Outdoor Adventure Vacation Packages that include everything from ATV riding and ziplining to mountain biking, kayaking, paddling, skiing and snowmobiling. Area activities include guided nature tours (for birds – and moose!), glider rides, sled dog rides, rock and ice climbing and hot air balloon rides. Skiers will find great alpine and Nordic resorts nearby offering trails for all ability levels in the winter, which get transformed into adventure centers in the summer.
