BOOK YOUR TRIP
New Road Mountain

This is a short little gem named not long after the rerouting of Route 3 due to problems with sinkholes, hence, new road. New Road Mountain is a great choice for those new to bushwhacking!

From Route 3 you will enter the forest on a flat grade but it soon gets very steep and rocky. There are many ledges and small cliffs to be aware of, some of these may need to be circumnavigated. The summit as well as many of the cliffs and open rock are open to wonderful views to the east. On the summit a cairn and survey marker await. The survey marker is labeled Sugarbush, after the closest town, slightly to the north. Be extra careful on the descent, as it can be slippery atop the cliffs. 

Elevation: 1,985 feet
Elevation Change: 375 feet
Distance: Approximately 0.5 mile one way
