The trail system at Wintergreen is divided into three types of trails: access trails, perimeter trails, and valley trails.

Access trails are blazed in YELLOW, perimeter trails in RED, and valley trails in BLUE. Besides the map and tree blazes, there are signs at intersections with trail name, direction, and blaze color.

EASY: Generally level terrain, all abilities

MODERATE: Varied terrain, short steep sections.

DIFFICULT: Lengthy steep sections, experienced hikers only.

You hike at your own risk:

Be aware that the weather can be change rapidly and the weather is different on the mountain.

Do not hike alone.

Do not underestimate the terrain. 

Carry drinking water and a snack. 

Be aware of wildlife and respect its space. 

Wear proper attire, including footwear. 

Carry a hiking map at all times. 

Stay on marked trails. 

Be aware of your limitations.

A detailed map of all of the trails within Wintergreen maintained by the foundation is available at the front desk of Wintergreen Resort’s Mountain Inn and at Trillium House.


In the winter be especially careful on the following trails due to the steepness of the trails and the abundance of ice and snow covered rocks. Even though the trails are open, hiking these trails during the winter makes them especially hazardous: HIKE AT YOUR OWN RISK! While we no longer close these trails, you are assuming the risk of an unsafe hiking environment.

Loggers Alley is closed where it crosses the ski slopes through the end of ski season.
