The view from the top is breathtaking. Part of the ascent is driving up Toll Road to the parking area and then the hike to the top. The trail is rocky and demands a level of fitness. There are plenty of rest spots to take...More
Awesome views east and west from peak. You can hike from the bottom, or take a car up the auto road and walk the last 1.4 miles. It’s a rocky hike, much of it above tree line, with lots of wind. Highest peak in Vermont...More
Spent a couple of strenuous hours hiking up the mountain from the state park to find the peak crowded. You can find less challenging approaches from the ski resort on the Stowe side of the mountain. The views are worth the effort!
Went yesterday (9/17/18) and parked at Underhill State Park. From this side, less touristy stuff, camping and hiking. Decided to go up via Halfway House Trail and across the Long Trail to the summit then back down via Sunset Ridge Trail. This loop took longer...More

The gondola takes you to the top of the mountain slowly and takes about 15 minutes to get to the top. I was surprised at how steady the ride is. However once you reach the top, we did get off rather quickly, although as someone else said, I think the attendant can stop it, if needed. My mother is 87 and walks without help but I wouldn't take her on the gondola. Once at the top it is very tricky to walk around as there are rocks, and uneven terrain. So unless the person is very steady on their feet they would need help to get around. We were there in early Oct. and it was very windy and cold at the top which can also affect your balance. I think I agree that taking the toll road would be easier on an elderly person.
