Mount Philo offers a short hike with amazing views of Lake Champlain and the Adirondacks. The trail is well marked and easy to navigate. If you're not used to hills, the hike may prove semi-challenging but it's short. Slow down and you'll be fine. The...More

If you're looking to hike with a young family or if you're simply looking for a relatively short and easy hike for yourselves, this is the place. Located about a 30-minute drive south of Burlington, Mount Philo is easy to get to and provides ample...More

I love this hike with children, it's fairly easy with a spectacular view for a reward. You can choose to hike through the woods (my preference) or hike the road. The best part of this hike is if someone in your group is older, disabled...More
