About the Hike:
Silver Mountain has one of the best views you can find for the minimal effort required. It has panoramic views in three directions from its flat, rocky summit. The half-mile trail to the summit begins on the right side of the road (near the cabin) and gets moderately steep in some places, but its very short length keeps the difficulty down. The trail takes you through the very large meadow atop the broad summit plateau. From the summit, there is a nice view of all the surrounding hills, extending into Vermont.
