Spring, summer and autumn each hold their own allure in Vermont’s Northeast Kingdom. In the spring, for a few special weeks every year, when the days begin to grow longer and warm daytime temperatures thaw the land, but the nights still freeze, the sap begins to flow. Maple Sugaring in unique to Northeastern America and the Northeast Kingdom has a place within this rich heritage that has been recognized far and wide. Many sugar-making families have been on their farms for several generations and are happy to have visitors stop by and walk or snowshoe among the sugar maples all the while enjoying the sweet smell that surrounds the sugar house during this wonderful season. As the sap flow ends and the summer months arrive visitors take to the out of doors to enjoy the trails, waterways, and cycling routes - the draw of which is so strong that they often return again and again until the last brilliant leaf of autumn has fallen.
In every season, Vermont’s Northeast Kingdom, is a haven for those who seek the active life.
