General Information

Description - Over 50 state parks are open from May to October each year offering miles of multi-use trails, swimming and picnicking facilities, fishing opportunities and much more. Winter use is limited to cross-country skiers enjoying the lands, however, facilities are closed. Snowmobiling is permitted at designated parks. Thirty-five state forests, nearly a dozen historic sites and four converted railroad beds open a plethora of recreation opportunity.

Attractions - From the secluded Kettle Pond to busy Smuggler's Notch, Vermont has offered a multitude of outdoor recreation for every age and ability for the past 75 years. Cascading waterfalls, mountain peaks, snug cabins, moss laden forests, joy-filled playgrounds, historic sites, bike paths and especially glimpses of wildlife await the Vermont visitor.

Recreation - Many opportunities await as you explore the diverse offerings of Vermont's State Parks, State Forests, Historic Sites and Rail-Trails. Whether you enjoy strenuous hikes, organized nature programs, deep woods camping, sharing a cabin with friends and family or just lying on a beach, Vermont has a setting in which you can make the most of your recreation time.

The Vermont Agency of Commerce & Community Development proudly operates the smattering of historic sites.

Four converted railroad beds now offer miles of mountain bike and hiking paths; many traveling through dense woodland lush with wildlife and rambling trout streams.

Climate - Vermont's climate varies somewhat depending on region. Generally, the state experiences mild summers with temperatures rarely reaching 90 degrees F. Often summer lows will dip to 50 degrees and by late August temperatures begin to cool. Signs of spring are evident in the Champlain Valley by late March, although the high country begins mud season at this time and doesn't get a full thaw until late April. The mountainous regions of the state have seen snow fall in every month, so be prepared for cooler temperatures if staying in those areas.

Winters can be harsh and long in this northern state. Snow is likely to fall anytime between September and April. Humidity makes winter weather seem bitter and usually a few weeks during the winter see night time temperature below zero. The average winter temperature is 20 degrees F with highs reaching into the forties on warm days.

Location - Vermont's State Parks, State Forests, Historic Sites and Rail-Trails span across the state throughout all travel regions.
