Mansfield, Mount

Mansfield, Mount

      highest point (4,393 feet [1,339 metres]) in Vermont, U.S., standing 20 miles (30 km) northeast of Burlington in the Green Mountains, a segment of the Appalachian Mountains. Mount Mansfield is actually a series of summits that together resemble the profile of a face. Individual peaks include the Adam's Apple, Forehead, Nose, Upper and Lower Lips, and Chin (highest point). On its western side the mountain descends more than 4,000 feet (1,200 metres) toward Lake Champlain. The mountain was named for the town of Mansfield (annexed to Underhill and Stowe in 1839). It is the focus of a state forest and resort area noted for winter sports; the Appalachian National Scenic Trail follows the crestline.
