Is Mt. Holly in VT a good place to stay to explore the Green Mountain National Forest?? I would love and appreciate any suggestions on things to do.
I've never been to Mt Holly, but I know it's a very small town in the heart of the Green Mountains. This is a rural area, but very beautiful and relaxing. The Green Mountain national Forest is really just a huge area of undeveloped forest, with hiking trails.
Thing to do in the area - Calvin Coolidge national historic village & cheese making shop, Okemo Mountain mountain coaster and zip lines, the picture perfect towns of Woodstock , Manchester, Grafton and Chester, the Vermont Country Store in Weston, the Billings Farm Museum in Woodstock.
It is interesting how people see the national forest on the Google Map and see that as a destination in and of itself. It makes sense - I would do the same thing as a visitor I'm sure - but it ends up being a poor way to ask about Vermont because no one who lives here really distinguishes the national forest land from any of the other state and town forest land when it comes to recreation. Best to ask directly about activities you want to do, and then get recommendations about best places to stay and do those activities.
I bought maple syrup from Papa John's Sugar Shack once, that is the only thing that I know about Mt. Holly. Not much going on there. And as I recall, Papa John's was several miles east of the where google maps shows as the center of Mt. Holly (town offices and the like).Edited: 13 July 2018, 05:15
