Stowe Pinnacle

Hiking in Stowe & Smugglers Notch

Offering breathtaking mountain views, this moderately difficult hike to the rocky outcrop called Stowe Pinnacle (2651ft) is short but steep (2.8 miles, three-hour round-trip). Follow VT 100 south of Stowe and turn east onto Gold Brook Rd, proceeding for 0.3 miles; cross a bridge and turn left to continue along Gold Brook Rd.

About 1.6 miles later, you come to Upper Hollow Rd; turn right and go to the top of the hill, just past Pinnacle Rd, to find the small parking area on the left.
