Get Outdoors

With more temperate weather on average than June and July, August’s hot days and cooler nights are an ideal time to explore Woodstock’s surrounding trail systems, play a round of golf or attend our outdoor events.

  • Whether you’re a seasoned golfer or a beginner looking to enjoy the sport amidst Vermont’s natural beauty, the 18-hole course at the Woodstock Country Club promises an unforgettable golfing experience that will leave you yearning to return for more rounds.
  • Looking for the best view in Woodstock? We suggest packing the pup and a picnic and heading for the summit of Mt. Peg where you can enjoy sweeping views of the valley below. August is the perfect time to enjoy peak greenery and lush rolling hills.
