Vermont's Green Mountains

Live and Play in the Heart of the Green Mountains

New England mountain scenery is unsurpassed in and around Granville. As one local realtor says, “People always come to this area asking for views. Well, there isn’t anywhere you can be in our town and not have a beautiful view!”

The main range of the Green Mountains rises to over 3,500 feet on the west side of Granville (with all of the ridges protected inside the 400,000 acre Green Mountain National Forest).  The Braintree Range, nearly as tall, rises on the east side of town. In between is the Route 100 Valley, where this popular country route explores both the Upper White River Valley and the Mad River Valley.

A vast network of dirt roads, woods roads, and trails stretch away from the Earth-friendly-home in Granville, including a path to the top of the Braintree Range with views stretching all the way to New Hampshire’s White Mountains. These many byways and paths offer endless opportunities for walking, hiking and biking during the glorious days of spring, at the height of summer, or when the forests turn scarlet and golden in fall. And these pathways also invite cross-country skiing and snowshoeing when winter comes.

Within minutes by car from the Granville green home, you can reach the Clark Brook Trail (one of the most scenic hiking trails in Vermont), which links directly into the storied Long Trail, a path through the wilderness that runs 273-miles from Massachusetts to Canada.

Spectacular hiking and views await at nearby Long Trail destinations like Mount Abraham (4,006 ft. tall) in Warren, Mount Roosevelt (3,528 ft. tall) in Granville, Silent Cliff in Hancock, and Mount Horrid in Rochester—truly some of the best hiking and snowshoeing in the state.

Texas Falls (on Rte. 125) and Moss Glen Falls (on Rte.100 in the Granville Gulf) are two of the finest waterfalls in Vermont, and a cooling destination in summer. The Mad River and White River both provide kayaking, tubing, wildlife viewing, and swimming destinations.

Four nearby ski resorts offer fine downhill trails ranging from beginner to black diamond.
