Stowe Pinnacle Trail

663 Upper Hollow Road
Stowe, VT 05672

Distance: 2.8 miles 
Time: 3 hours 
Difficulty: Moderate

From GMC Headquarters, take Vt. 100 north 3.5 miles. Turn right onto Gold Brook Road. After crossing a bridge at .3 miles, turn left continuing on Gold Brook Road. After 1.6 miles you reach a junction with Upper Hollow Road. Turn right and at the top of the hill just past Pinnacle Road is a small parking area on the left.

The Stowe Pinnacle Trail is relatively short but steep, with a bald open summit from which you can see the Green Mountains to the west (including Camel’s Hump, the Bolton Range, the Nebraska Notch, Mt. Mansfield and the Sterling Mountain Range) and the Worcester Range. You’ll see Hogback Mt. to the southeast, which you can get to via the Hogback Trail.
