If you set your compass to northeast you’ll eventually land up in Essex County, the most north and the most east county in Vermont. Bordered by the Connecticut River to the west and New Hampshire to the east this small county boasts only 6,306 residents, per the 2010 census.
This county has a smattering of seasonal activities such as cross country skiing, ice skating, apple and pumpkin picking, as well as farmers markets during the harvest season. Moose watching is also a popular activity in the county with around 1,000 moose roaming the 675 square miles.
While lacking in official biking trials, this quiet county is a good place for meandering through trials and camping at Brighton State Park.
