Mt Wantastiquet

The Wantastiquet Mountain Natural Area, which is located in the Northwestern corner of town along the Connecticut River, encompasses over 1,000 acres of state owned land between Hinsdale and Chesterfield. Many visit the area to hike the 1,335 feet high Wantastiquet Mountain, which offers outstanding views of Brattleboro, Vermont and the Connecticut River Valley. A wide and easy to follow trail (~2.0 miles) leads from a small lot at the gated end of Mountain Road to the Walter H. Child Monument. This trail connects to Miners Ledge, which provides a sweeping vista of the Connecticut River Valley, and continues on to the Madame Sherri Forest in Chesterfield.
