Jackson Trail

About this Location

Begin at the Trail Around Middlebury (TAM) parking area on the south side of VT-23, 1.5 miles north at the junction with VT-125 in Middlebury Village. Cross VT-23 and start this enjoyable hike by climbing the stile over the fence near the north side of VT-23. Don’t be surprised if you find yourself among cows! Follow the TAM signs to the lower end of a small gorge through which a seasonal stream runs. The trail runs north along the stream bank within the gorge for the first mile, then emerges into a meadow before intersecting Hamilton Road. Turn right onto Hamilton Road and walk 200 yards east to the Johnson Trailhead and parking area on your left.
