Although it has only two national areas, Vermont is rich in state parks that showcase its beautiful scenery. The Appalachian Trail runs through fourteen states. In Vermont the trail enters the state near White River Junction and cuts across the state and then turns south near Killington Peak. The trail then continues south on the western side of the state. The nearest interstate to the beginning of the Vermont section of the trail is Interstate 89.

The Marsh - Billings - Rockefeller National Historic Park is near the Appalachian Trail. It is located to the west of White River Junction. Tours of the buildings are offered. The area is also great for hiking. A Civil War Home Front Walking Tour is also available.
