Green Mountain National Forest

Green Mountain & Finger Lakes National Forests’ scenic beauty along the backbone of Vermont’s Green Mountains and New York’s Finger Lakes region provide unlimited recreational opportunities any time of the year. Whether you are a hiker, cross-country skier, camper, fishing or hunting enthusiast, snowmobiler, horseback rider, mountain biker or wildlife watcher, the Green Mountain & Finger Lakes National Forests can provide the recreational experience you are seeking!

In Vermont, the Green Mountain National Forest is separated into the North Zone and the South Zone – keep this in mind when planning your trip to the forest. Our recreational opportunity guides provide information about each recreation trail, day use area or campground – and are available in printable PDF’s for both forests. These PDF’s can be found under each recreation area for which they are available.
