New life hiking spa is the most award-winning spa in the country for hiking and outdoor adventure
No one does hiking better than us. For the 20 weeks we are open in Vermont, hiking is at its prime. It’s the country’s most beautiful hiking at the most beautiful time of the year!
Beginner hikes take you along picturesque country settings, mountain streams, and working farms.
Intermediate hikes lead you along the diverse terrain of the famous Appalachian and Long Trails.
Advanced hikes challenge you further up some of the highest peaks in Vermont with breathtaking views
All of our hiking guides live and breathe the outdoors. They are highly trained to provide guests with an individual adventure that will not be forgotten.
We practice the “Leave no trace” outdoor etiquette. We are operated under special use permit with the Green Mountain National Forest. We are an equal opportunity provider.
The nature walk will be flat or rolling hills 2-4 miles in length. This will provide a good workout for the beginner hiker while enjoying the beautiful Vermont scenery at a more relaxing pace. We can accommodate most ability levels comfortably so that you will be challenged at just the right level while enjoying the great outdoors.
Classic (or intermediate) hikes provide a scenic workout for the advanced beginner, intermediate or experienced hiker, covering anywhere from 4-6 miles on wooded trails and ancient ways. Visit beautiful lookouts, ancient mines and serene waterfalls. A ratio of no more than 6:1 hikers to hike leaders insures that you feel comfortable at your own pace while being appropriately challenged.
Advanced hikes cover steeper more challenging terrain and longer distances at a more vigorous pace. Not for the faint of heart, the rewards are wonderful views from the top of Vermont. Some elevations over 4000 feet will be reached where you experience a different climate and Vermont’s unique high elevation alpine tundra environment.
