Tucked into the southern terminus of the Green Mountains of Vermont, Wilmington is a tiny village of just over 2,000 people. Wilmington is fortunate to have both mountains and lakes close by for outdoor adventures, making it a perfect four-season destination.
Lake Whitingham is more than eight miles long and features more than 28 miles of wild, undeveloped shoreline. It's great for swimming, paddling, boating, and fishing.
This amazing view requires zero effort on your part. From the parking lot vantage point, you’re looking east into New Hampshire, where you’ll see Mt. Monadnock and the White Mountains - 100 miles on a clear day!
Beer and Spirits
While you're on Hogback Mountain, be sure to check out Beer Naked Brewery for craft beers and wood-fired pizza, and Metcalfe's Distillery for Maple Bourbon and Vermont Moonshine!
Dot's is a historic icon that serves breakfast and lunch to locals and visitors. It's located right in downtown Wilmington and is a must-visit spot during your stay!
Molly Stark state Park
Hike to fire tower on the top of Mt. Olga. The trail is just 1.8 miles round trip and the views are awesome. Molly Stark State Park also has a great campground and is close to downtown.
In the winter, Mount Snow, in nearby West Dover, VT, attracts skiers and snowboarders from all over the world. f you visit Mount Snow in the summer or fall, you can still take the chairlift to the top of the mountain for awesome views.
Hoot, Toot, and whistle trail
this trail hugs the river and the lake for two miles until it reaches a nice swimming beach and boat launch. It’s a nice walk in the summer and fall, and great for snowshoeing in the winter.
