On this amazing Vermont backpacking adventure, we will trek on the Long Trail, the oldest long-distance hiking trail in the US, through the spectacular Green Mountains of Vermont. We will enjoy a thru-hike (so no backtracking!) that summits the state’s tallest mountain and earns us views from the peaks of several iconic ski areas. We will spend one night with a view of the stunning valley bellow Spruce Peak, and we’ll camp near majestic Sterling Pond. To top it all off, we will experience a night in a Long Trail Lodge on the shoulder of Mount Mansfield.
