Blue Ridge Mountain starts out at a gradual incline, and then you start approaching the waterfall. At that point it turns fairly steep for about 1.5 Miles. It is a great challenge, and the trail is pretty well maintained. There are not a lot of side trails so it is easy to not get lost, and the views from both look outs are great. There is points where the trail gets rocky, but there are no vertical or open rockfaces. At one point I saw about 10 Asprey's flying around at the top and it was an amazing site to see. If you continue down the other side of the mountain it brings you out just forward of the Chittenden Dam. The hike to the summit and back is about 5.2 miles and is a good challenge for any skill level.

Directions:

Take Route 4 East into Mendon, until you come to the Killington Pico Motor Lodge, and there is a road directly across the street called Old Turnpike Road. Take that left and about .5 miles up on the left is the entrance to the trail.
