Great photo opportunity in any season. It’s a wonderful stop on your travels in southern VT. Best photos are in fall, of course. Gets very crowded on weekends. We always go during the week.

It was a beautiful day with a view that was great! I would say we could see 100 miles or more. I would love to come back in the fall and look at this same view with the autumn leaves!

I wouldn't make a special trip to go see this, but if you are driving on Route 9 then it's definitely worth stopping for a nice view.

We traveled over "hogsback Mountain" and through the Molly Stark trails. It appeared to be peak season for fall foliage. Absolutely gorgeous. There are no words to describe the "beauty of God" that we saw.
