Trail Overview

This trail follows the original route of the Baily-Hazen Military Road, which was built in the 1780s, and in places, you can still see the original cobblestones. There are some truly beautiful views of northern Vermont. The trail is rough and rock-covered and can be very slippery when wet. There are multiple rock ledges up to 3ft high, and there are also lots of loose rocks. The trail narrows in places with not many turnarounds. The trail is cut into the hillside with near-vertical sides in places. I'm driving a 2021 Power wagon and it was a tight fit. Be sure to bring an axe or saw to clear any downed trees.
