Route 9, the major east-west travel corridor in southern Vermont, bisects the Hogback Mountain Conservation Area and brings you to the famous 100-mile view. On a clear day, you will be rewarded with views of Vermont, Massachusetts, and New Hampshire. Pull off and enjoy the scenery.

Stay a little longer and take a hike. Hogback offers a wealth of natural and scenic resources including the headwaters of the Green River watershed. It provides important wildlife habitat for a variety of mammals such as deer, porcupine, bobcat, black bear, and moose. It also includes summer habitats for neotropical migrant birds such as the black-throated blue and black-throated green warblers.

Hogback Mountain is open year-round to the public for hiking, snow-shoeing, and other low-impact recreation.
