Dorset, VT


Dorset: With three major highways (US 7, Vermont 7A and Vermont 30) running through it, Dorset has a number of businesses and attractions which would make it a destination in its own right. However, since a hiker would need to go through much larger Manchester to get to Dorset, the services in Dorset will not be the ones closest to the AT in most instances. Dorset has three campgrounds, many inns, and several restaurants.

The green in Dorset Village on Vermont 30 is quintessentially New England, and is ringed by several businesses and inns. Most other businesses are on Vermont 30 as well. The town is home to the Dorset Playhouse which annually hosts the Dorset Theatre Festival. Emerald Lake State Park, and its campground, are on US 7 in North Dorset.

Did you know? The Dorset Field Club (a members-only golf course) is the oldest continually-operated golf course in the U.S.
