Mt. Horrid Great Cliff Trail
From Vermont Route 73 at Brandon Gap, take the Long Trail north to a blue-blazed spur trail that leads out to the Cliffs. The trail climbs steadily upward, but the excellent view at the top makes the trip worthwhile. From March to August of most years, the cliffs are closed to protect nesting Peregrine falcons.
