This August YNA is going to make their very first trip to The Ledges in Vermont (Wilmington, VT)! The Ledges in Vermont is a clothing-optional swimming area located on the Harriman Reservoir.
Nude swimming and sunbathing have been enjoyed there for decades. With clean water, stunning views, and undeveloped land, this area is known for its natural breath-taking beauty.
Nude use is also not just tradition here, but completely legal, as Vermont does not have any state laws against simple nudity in public. This allows many people in VT to enjoy skinny dipping, free / nude hiking and being in nature as nature intended, without having to worry about legal repercussions.
(Of course this doesn’t mean you can go naked anywhere in VT — towns can make their own laws to override this, so always check local laws and do your research.)
It’s a popular place, and as many as 400 people can be found there on a nice day. There are people of all ages.
Getting to the Ledges Vermont
Directions: The Ledges is about 3.5 -4 hour drive from NYC. To get there you need to get to Rt 100 and from there turn onto Boyd Hill Road. Follow this road down til you get to the parking lot (at Wards Beach Access Rd).
There you’ll park and then follow an easy trail to the right (wear comfortable shoes; it’s a little rocky). About a half mile up you’ll see a sign indicating the start of the nude section, and little bit further is the main beach area. Here is a small map below.
For your GPS, you can try using an intersection: Boyd Hill Road and Rt 100, or Boyd Hill Road and Riley Boyd Rd – Wilmington, VT. If you know a good GPS address for The Ledges, please tell us in the comments below!
FYI, if you are meeting us at the Ledges, you can find our group by looking for the white YNA flag.
If you’re in need of a ride, we will do our best to arrange carpooling. Contact us (ynaevents [at[ gmail.com) or use our Facebook event wall to post rides or ask for rides.
Accommodations at Abbott’s Glen Nude Vermont Inn
We have also arranged for a discount camping at Abbott’s Glen, a clothing-optional inn nearby. We will have a tenting area set aside for YNA. Space is limited for tenting, so don’t wait to register! Abbott’s Glen also has individual campsites and rooms for overnight options.
But note: if you want your own individual campsite, you will need to pay the regular rates. Contact them directly to book a room: 802-368-2525 or email email@example.com

Abbott’s Glen and the Ledges VT Trip Schedule
We plan to spend the day at The Ledges on Saturday. There is also a place to rent kayaks and canoes on the reservoir, so we may take advantage of that on Saturday.
People are welcome to camp overnight at Abbott’s Glen Friday and Saturday night or just join us at The Ledges on Saturday. On Friday nights there is usually a bonfire at Abbott’s Glen, and on Saturday night there will be dancing in their Club Sugar Shack. On Sunday we will spend some time hanging out at Abbott’s Glen before heading home. Abbott’s Glen has a nicely landscaped property for nude sunbathing and a pond for swimming.
Please bring your own lunch and beverages for the Ledges. For other meals as a group we will likely go out to local restaurants together, or bring back food to eat together at the inn.
