If for whatever reason, you happen to be driving along the U.S./Canadian border in Vermont’s scenic Northeast Kingdom region, give some consideration to doing the short 0.7 mile hike to Averill Mountain (2,240 ft). The trail is well-maintained and easy to follow. And, you might also want to consider a hike to Brousseau Mountain which is in the same general vicinity. I did that hike the last time I was driving through this area. (Click HERE to read my blog posting for that trek.)
The trailhead for Averill Mountain is on the north side of VT-114. There is roadside parking on the south shoulder of the road at the junction of VT-114 and Lake View Road. Coming from the east, the trailhead is located 3.9 miles east of the turn for the Canadian border crossing in Norton, VT. And coming from the west, the trailhead is 9.5 miles west of VT-102 in Canaan, VT.
Shown below is a map which might be of further help in clarifying the location of this hike.
