What's YOUR favorite trail?

Living in Underhill, I have the good fortune of spending lots of time on the trails that run up, down, and across Mt. Mansfield. I especially love snowshoeing these trails in the winter, despite the occasional challenge to find the LT's white blazes if the snow has been blowing about and is clinging to trees. My favorite summer path to the LT is the Hell Brook trail up off the Notch Road, in part because it is a challenging climb, but also because one gets to glimpse the Lake of the Clouds from the Adam's Apple, and then enjoy a sweet scramble up the backside of the chin to meet the LT. From there, it's nice to walk the ridge and see our great state from up high! I really hope to hike the whole LT one day... maybe after I win Powerball?
