For outdoor enthusiasts of all levels and for all seasons, Vermont’s Moosalamoo National Recreation Area of almost 16,000 acres, is a treasure in the heart of the Green Mountain National Forest. More than 70 miles of well-maintained trails — from rugged cliffs to gentle slopes — provide many opportunities for hiking, biking, cross/back-country skiing, snowshoeing, wildlife and bird watching, and more. Take in the spectacular scenery with expansive mountain vistas, hardwood and softwood forests, waterfalls, and secluded lakes and streams. Enjoy wilderness solitude or retrace the footsteps of Robert Frost, whose last summer home on the northern edge of the area can be visited, along with the one-mile Robert Frost Interpretive Trail.
The region stretches from the western slopes of the Green Mountains, where the Long Trail is located, east to Lake Dunmore, and from Scenic Vermont Route 125 in the north to Route 73 in the south. In the gateway villages of Brandon, Middlebury, and Rochester you will find accommodations, restaurants, artisan shops, museums, and a wide variety of activities.
