Clarendon Gorge (Upper Falls)

Activities Regional: 
Clarendon George just a few miles from Hearside Vermont Rental

THE GORGE: What makes this gorge and waterfall unique is the suspension "monkey" bridge. The 30ft long bridge crosses directly above the Clarendon Gorge which, is also a popular swimming hole with deep pools for lightweight "cliff diving". There are many hiking and camping paths after you cross the bridge. The Clarendon Gorge and the Appalachian Trail or "Long Trail" cross paths here. The Long Trail travels from Southern Georgia to Canada.

Buttermilk Falls (Ludlow, VT)

Activities Regional: 
Buttermilk Falls, Ludlow, Vermont

Buttermilk Falls is about 1 mile east of Rt. 103 and the entrance to the Lake Ninevah Rd. and is well worth a visit. Since Buttermilk falls is not visible from the road, it is quite surprising and amazing that this little gem packs so much beauty into such a "small" place.

From Hearthside, go all the way out to Rt 103 and turn left (east). Travel east on 103 for about 1 mile and turn left on Buttermilk Falls Road.

Large shallow and calm water for small children. Very good size "cliffs" to jump into deep pools. Plentiful shady or sunny areas for picnicing.

Common Loon (Gavia immer) - This primitive bird has since become a symbol of grace, beauty, and wildness for many people.

Native Americans believed it was “The Spirit of the Northern Waters,” and the French named it “The Diver with the Necklace.” Of the four species of loons found in North America, the common loon is the only breeding species in Vermont.

Loons are sensitive to disturbances, especially during the breeding season. People are encouraged to remain at least 300 feet from nesting and nursery areas during this period

Quechee Gorge, known as “Vermont’s Little Grand Canyon,” is one of New England’s most popular natural wonders.

The metamorphic bedrock along which the river flows is the Gile Mountain Formation. The Devonian age formation is widespread in eastern Vermont. A Mesozoic mafic dike (augite camptonite), up to 220 cm wide, occurs along the west wall of the gorge and dips 62 degrees east (McHone, 1981)..

The Vermont Marble Museum, Central-Vermont

Activities Regional: 
Vermont Marble Museum

Only a quarter mile stroll from the Museum parking lot, the viewing area allows the visitor to see the original Proctor quarry.

Set in the center of town, you will find yourself in a great place for a picnic, or simply a walk to enjoy nature and view a quarry scene complete with a "quarry stick".

Take a walk to the Sutherland Falls Quarry Site.We recently completed the walkway to the original "Sutherland Falls Quarry", 1/8 mile down the road. You can walk or drive and view the original quarry.
