A gorgeous, year-round hike in Underhill State Park.

The Sunset Ridge Trail is a 5.1 mile scenic hike through Underhill State Park in Vermont. Although this hike is a bit strenuous, the 360 degree views at the summit more than reward your efforts. The trail is best hiked from May until October, but can be trafficked throughout the year with snowshoes or crampons. Dogs are allowed on this trail, so bring your furry friends but be sure to keep them on leash!
