Hartland Winter Trails at Cobb Hill

Cobb Hill Cohousing and Cedar Mountain Farm are part of the Hartland Winter Trails, 20km of trails through 25 properties in Hartland, VT. 
Take in views of Mount Ascutney, see the sugarbush, pick up some award-winning cheese, and meet the fjord horses. We love sharing the beauty right outside our doors!

Cobb Hill Cohousing is a small intentional community and eco-village on 270 acres, comprised of 23 households. Cedar Mountain Farm is a family farm located on the property. The milk from their 60 jerseys is turned into Cobb Hill Cheese, and the extra goes to Cabot Cooperative. They grow vegetables for a CSA and on-site farmstand.

The Hartland Winter Trails (cross country skiing and snowshoeing) provide a unique opportunity to meander through fields and back woods; over gently rolling to steep terrain in the Three- and Four-Corners areas of Hartland, Vermont. The trails are all on private properties, are created and maintained by volunteers, and open to the community free of charge.


Winter Activities

Cross country skiing and snowshoeing.
