Hiking & Biking

Biking and Hiking the Countryside

Basin Harbor’s miles of nature trails offer lovely scenery and glimpses of local wildlife, all manner of birds including eagles, deer, foxes, and the occasional moose. We have a special trail guide illustrated by our naturalist, that shows you the best routes for your Vermont hiking and biking. And the level lanes of our country roads beg to explored by bike (rentals are available), with several scenic biking routes to chose from.

Hiking opportunities also abound, whether you take one of our guided hikes or head off-campus to Snake Mountain, Camels Hump or the Adirondack Park. Nearby Button State Park includes a beautiful nature preserve. Vermont’s Green Mountains and famous Long Trail, all beckon to the more adventurous.
