About this Location

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-foot-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.
