The Rabit’s Nest, 2023

This cramped, disheveled shack is a not-so-secret shelter for skiers and hikers on the Stowe side of Mount Mansfield.  The Rabbit’s Nest sits in a hidden pine grove at the end of a short, unmarked trail that begins from the Mount Mansfield Toll Road where the Hasselton and South Link trails meet near the top of the FourRunner quad lift.

Built in 1953, The Rabbit’s Nest features bunks enough for three, a small cast iron stove, and reputation as a party spot for skiers.
