The town of Jay was named after John Jay, the first Chief Justice of the United States and a local landholder. Jay Peak is a portion of the northern Green Mountains with Big Jay on its southwest and North Jay Peak on its north. Though most of the mountain is at Jay State Forest, the peak is actually in the watershed of the Missisquoi River that spills into Lake Champlain then the Gulf of Saint Lawrence. The Long Trail, created by the Green Mountain Club between the 1910s and 20s, spans entire Vermont from North to South. On the north is Jay Peak Resort, the fifth-largest ski resort in Vermont.
