Trail shared by Tim Rapczynski

A trail along the ridgeline of the Worcester Mountain Range connecting Mount Hunger and Mount Worcester.

Tim Rapczynski

Features Fall Colors · Spring · Views · Wildlife

Closed April 15 through Memorial Day Weekend due to mud season, per the Green Mountain Club.

Description

The Skyline Trail stretches from Mount Hunger to Mount Worcester, following the ridgeline of the Worcester Mountain Range. Midway there is a cutoff to the Hogback Trail which connects to the Stowe Pinnacle Trail.

This route has several ups and downs along the way (some scrambling required) and is marked with blue blazes. It provides a great opportunity to connect the more commonly traveled trails (consider parking two cars at separate trailheads if possible). There will be mud and possible downed trees, as this trail appears to be frequented more so by moose than by people.
