Jay Peak Trail is Vermont's northernmost Green Mountain National Forest hike. The 3,861 foot summit juts proudly above the landscape. The trail begins by overlapping with the Long Trail, passing the Atlas Valley Day Shelter then splitting off beyond a group of trail markers. The mostly rocky path traverses a conifer forest laced with boulders. The popular trail is wide and terminates at the summit along with a year-round ski tram. This is not a wilderness hike but a hike that does offer fabulous views of the Green Mountains, Mount Royal and Owl's Head in Canada along with Lake Memphremagog which rests along Canada's border and even views of the White Mountains over in New Hampshire.
Directions: From Montgomery Center, VT, Travel east along SR 242 for nearly 7 miles. The trailhead is across the road from the Long Trail parking lot.
Elevation: 3,861 feet
Elevation Gain: 1,680 feet
