Sunset Ridge and Long Trail Loop is a 5.9 mile heavily trafficked loop trail located near Underhill Center, Vermont that features a waterfall and is rated as difficult. The trail offers a number of activity options and is best used from May until October. Dogs are also able to use this trail but must be kept on leash. The Sunset Ridge and Long Trail Loop is one of the most popular trails in the Underhill State Park. The Underhill Center and parking lot are right at the trailhead. The Sunset Ridge trail takes you to the highest peak of the park while the Long Trail loops along the ridge back to the trailhead. It's recommended by park staff to ascend the Halfway House Trail, traverse the Long Trail to the Chin (highest point in Vermont) and then descend Sunset Ridge. Halfway House is a steep trail, especially close to the Long Trail ridge-line, but has numerous switchbacks along the way. The Long Trail is all above the tree line and provides nearly 360 views of Vermont, Adirondacks, & White Mountains, but there's no shelter in bad weather (wind or rain). Sunset Ridge is a more gradual hike down, so it's less difficult heading down Mansfield; it also is above tree line for the top half and provides excellent views of the Champlain Valley and Adirondacks. The trail to the summit can be slippery and spikes are recommended. Other popular sites in the area are the Green Mountains, Cantilever Rock, and Pleasant Valley. Halfway and Sunset Ridge have Blue Blazes, while the Long Trail is White. It's best to avoid Yellow blazed trails because they are generally more difficult rock scrambles.

Sunset Ridge and Laura Cowles Trail make up a great loop trip up Mansfield. My preference is up Laura Cowles and down Sunset. Great views from the Chin on Mansfield and most of the way down Sunset Ridge trail. Trekking poles recommended especially if it has rained recently. Bear in mind that the weather is unpredictable and the temp above treeline is typically lower than below so dress accordingly.
