Fantastic views. Quite pricey to get the gonadal up in the summer/ autumn months. Not loads to do at the top, shop and restaurant ( very expensive) but the views are well worth the trip.
We were recommended to use the gondola up to the top. Although it was a bit expensive it was worth every dollar. The views were amazing and the restaurant at the top was superb. To get to the top of such a big mountain so easily was amazing.

While there are many ways to summit Mt. Mansfield, if you're hiking (IMO the best way) I'd recommend ascending The Laura Cowles Trail and descending The Sunset Ridge. Neither is easy. Especially Laura Cowles. Nearly perpetually wet. (see: climbing sometimes with hands up an inverted creek w/running water!) It is a challenge and not for the faint hearted or inexperienced... More
