In an effort to make it easier for you to "visit" some of the features of our state parks, we've put Burton Island's North Shore Nature Trail on-line, complete with color pictures and text from the brochure.
Want to get out and enjoy the fall? Everyone loves Camel’s
Hump and Mt. Mansfield this time of year, but our other parks trails need love
too… and are less crowded. If you’ve experienced Vermont in the fall, you know
that it’s hard to go wrong. Here are some suggestions for roads less taken.
Also remember to be careful on the roads and when parking on trailheads...
respect your surroundings and the folks who live there.
If you have another fall hike to recommend, let us know! Molly Stark State Park in Wallingford
After you’ve watched the colors of
northern VT fade, head south and do it all again! A 1.7 mile hike takes you up
Mt. Olga and back again. As a bonus, you can climb the fire tower to get great
views of the mountains in three states: Vermont, New Hampshire and Massachusetts.
If you want to do more hiking, the park is also adjacent to more trails at
Hogback Mountain. You can camp at Molly Stark through Columbus Day weekend. Emerald Lake State Park in East Dorset

coming for Lake Shaftsbury State ParkShaftsbury,
Vt. -- Several
operational changes are slated for Lake Shaftsbury State Park for the upcoming
summer season. These changes are in response to increased visitation and a
continuing effort to better serve the demands of park visitors. Changes
include a new playground, a more relaxed pet policy, and an extended operating
season. The playground is expected to be in place and ready for visitors by
mid-June and will include swings, a dome-shaped climbing structure and a large,
classic play structure. For
the first time, pets will be allowed in the park everywhere except the sandy
beach and inside buildings. Access areas for dogs to go for a swim separated
from the beach area have been identified and will be posted with clear signage
before the park opens…
