Food Scene

In Vermont we call soft service ice cream creemies. I think they have one of the best creemies in VT, but I'm only slightly biased by the short commute. Open seasonally.

The Bobcat is a great gastro pub, in fact it is where we had our first date, with locally sourced ingredients and has, in our opinion, the best burger and fries in VT. They also brew their own beer.

3 Squares offers a hearty breakfast, brunch and lunch menu. They take pride in sourcing a lot of ingredients locally. They also make their own chocolate from a cacao plantation they co-own in S. America.

This used to be owned by the same French chef who founded the Bobcat Cafe. The meal options are often pretty heavy (read lots of butter) but it's delicious. We will venture there for special occasions as it's a bit pricier than the Bobcat.

Hike to the top of Mad River Glen. Trailhead on Jim Dwyer Rd. in Starksboro.
A western approach to Mount Abraham, Vermont's fifth highest peak, the Battell Trail joins the Long Trail near tent sites and a log shelter on the slopes of Lincoln Mountain. Aside from rare plants and fabulous views, two sugarbushes are found on the route.

1922-1940 Elder Hill Rd

You can skip part of the climb up Mt. Abraham by driving to the top of Lincoln Gap and following the Long Trail to the summit. Mount Abraham is the 5th tallest peak in Vermont and the tallest in Addison County at 4,017 feet. The Long Trail traverses the summit ridge of Mount Abraham. The views on the summit look to Champlain Valley and the Adirondack Mountains. If you head south from the parking area (the opposite direction from Mt. Abe) a short 20 minute hike you can catch a great view and sunset at sunset ledge.

From the parking lot, the trail leads into the woods and climbs moderately to a bridge at 0.2 miles. The trail continues beside a stream to a second stream crossing that has no bridge, but can be crossed on rocks. Ascending steadily after the second stream crossing, the trial climbs to a third stream crossing after which the terrain is gentler. The trail arrives at the outlet of Abbey Pond at 2.1 miles. Abbey Pond supports a community of marsh plants and animals. This trail is sometimes closed to protect nesting great blue herons. Watch for closure posters. Average hike time: 2 - 2.5 hours round trip.
