Brousseau Mountain, Norton, VT

Important Notice: The cliffs on Brousseau Mountain are home to the rare Peregrine Falcon. These recently endangered birds are still recovering in Vermont and may be disturbed by human activity. You can help Peregrine restoration in Vermont! Pay attention to signs warning you about Peregrine nests and, if possible, plan your hiking trips to avoid nesting areas during the incubation period: March 1 August 1.

Brousseau Mountain (elev. 2723 ft.) in Norton offers a short and scenic hike that is considered by many to be the best view for the effort. Due to its far northern locale, this local favorite is seldom visited by mainstream hikers and often provides a solitary experience.  ... More

Monadnock Mountain

Monadnock Mountain (elev. 3148 ft.) has the distinction of being the most easternmost mountain in Vermont. It is also distinct due to the fact that, like its southern cousin, in New Hampshire., it is a true Monadnock- a peak that sits alone and stands high above the surrounding landscape. Purported to be the remnant core of an extinct volcano, Monadnock rises steeply over the northern Connecticut River Valley and offers a challenging, but rewarding, hike.   ...More
