Ludlow Mountain
Mount Holly, VT

Trailheads, measurements, times, distances, and maps are all approximate and relative to the hike(s) as shown below.

Healdville Trail

In the area on business, I was able to sneak out and hike Ludlow Mountain (Okemo). I had been meaning to hike this for awhile, however something usually came up (whether it be work, bad weather, or the Three Stooges).

Due to the time of the season and the time of the week, the parking lot and trail were completely empty. Though seemingly well maintained, there were large blowdowns all over the place.

The trail itself is a moderate hike - flat in many places with a few moderate scrambles. The view from the summit tower is excellent - stronger than that of nearby Ascutney.
