Join Neil and Jim for Day 2 (of two) of our Vermont activities weekend. We’ll hike approximately six miles round to trip to the dramatic Hamilton Falls in Jamaica State Park and back. We’ll follow the West River Trail to the Overlook Trail to the falls, whose height is estimated to be 40-50 feet. This is a moderate hike with a total elevation gain of less than 1,000 feet. However, there are a few steep sections.

Driving directions to the location and spot to meet at:

From the town of Jamaica, VT, drive south on VT-30/VT-100. Toward the southern end of town turn right on Depot Street. Continue for 0.5 miles. Turn left onto Salmon Hole Lane to enter the park, and continue to the Jamaica State Park campground parking lot.
