Vermont Mountain Days
Many of the programs we develop or support originate from community advisory boards around Vermont. These groups of committed health-minded Vermonters support health promotion and education in the areas of the state in which they live.
One such long-standing celebration spearheaded by our Windham County Community Advisory Board is our annual Mountain Day, which started in 2000. Each year, hundreds of Vermonters convene to hike up Mt. Wantastiquet, near Brattleboro.
In 2019, we're thrilled to add two new hikes to our list: Burke Mountain Red Trail in Burke and Mt. Anthony in Bennington. We invite families and solo hikers alike to join us as we enjoy the natural beauty of Vermont while we exercise in the great outdoors! At all Mountain Days, the first 100 attendees receive a free Mountain Day t-shirt and a healthy lunch.
