The Long Trail, VT
Established in the early 1900s, Vermont’s 272-mile Long Trail is the oldest distance hike in the U.S. Stretching from the Massachusetts border to Canada, following the main ridge of the Green Mountains, it traverses the entire state of Vermont. It also coincides with the Appalachian Trail for a good stretch, encompassing craggy mountain peaks, alpine bogs, hardwood forests, and plenty of lakes and streams to cast a fly line into. Nearly 70 primitive shelters and tent sites spaced a day’s walk apart provide convenient overnights. The best section runs between the Maine Gap and the Canadian border, just after the LT and AT split, where it’s very remote and far less crowded than other parts.
