The Green Mountains are a low mountain range in the US state of Vermont . The mountain zone runs in an almost straight line from East Richford in the north to Jay Peak ( ) on the border with the province of Quebec in Canada over about 355 km (220 miles) to the south to the border with the neighboring state of Massachusetts .
The highest point at 1339 m is Mount Mansfield , 16 km (10 miles) northeast of Burlington . The gentle hills, mostly covered with deciduous forest ( maple ), are a noticeable difference to the rough granite massif of the nearby White Mountains in northern New Hampshire . In addition, the weather at the time of the Indian Summer in the Green Mountains in October is even milder than in the neighboring state.
