Barr Hill is one of the highest points in Greensboro. From the open field at the trailhead, there is a stunning, nearly panoramic view that sweeps from Spruce and Signal Mountains at Groton State Park to the southern Green Mountains, Woodbury Mountain, Camel’s Hump, Elmore Mountain and Mount Mansfield.
What TNC Is Doing
Barr Hill Natural Area is owned and managed by The Nature Conservancy of Vermont. The Philip Gray family donated this land, which was immortalized in Wallace Stegner’s book Crossing to Safety, to TNC in 1972. Every spring, volunteers maintain the trail and picnic area for all to enjoy.
