On this backpacking trip we explore the Appalachian Trail, Vermont’s amazing Long Trail and the pristine backcountry landscapes of Southern Vermont. We hike a figure 8 loop on the combined Appalachian Trail and Long Trail, summiting Green Mountain as our high point of the trip. Then we descend into lower elevation forests to hike for days past a remote mountain creeks and rivers, and camp near two secluded ponds/lakes. There will be time every day to relax at camp before a delicious guide-prepared dinner and an opportunity for campfires in the evening.
This trip is great for families and guests interested in an immersive experience in Vermont’s wilderness, with moderate hiking and time to savor the backcountry. Give us a call at 800-715-HIKE (4453) to learn more or book your trip today!
