The Elephant's Head Trail off the Long Trail. "From the cliff summit, you can see 1,000 feet straight down to the roadway below you. Across the notch are the walls of Mount Mansfield, ecause peregrine falcons have recently returned to the Elephant's Head cliff, the trail to the top of Elephant's Head may be closed during nesting season." Fifty Hikes in Vermont, The Green Mountain Club 1990 (page 158).
