Vermont’s mountains aren’t called the Green Mountains for nothing! This section of the Appalachian Trail is characterized by dense and verdant forests, offering great autumn foliage and a chance to get away from the crowds. In Vermont, the AT also coincides with the Long Trail beginning at the Massachusetts border, just north of Mount Greylock. The two trails share a footpath for 100 miles through southern Vermont, crossing notable peaks such as Stratton and Bromley. Killington Mountain in central Vermont marks the first time the AT reaches an elevation of 4,000 feet since Tennessee. We'll cover a little over sixty miles, returning at the end of the day to our lodging in the small ski town of Killington, VT. You'll hike significant mileage on this trip - between 10-15 miles each day, which does require being in excellent physical condition. Maximum group size: 12

This trip involves hiking from 10 to 15 miles a day (see the itinerary for daily mileage) with significant elevation changes and footing that is rocky and uneven at times. It requires being in very good physical condition. While you can always choose to stay in town for the day, there are no options for shortening the daily hikes. This trip is rated 4. Prior to beginning the trip, participants should be engaged in aerobic conditioning for at least 40-50 minutes 4-5 times a week. Additional endurance exercise (e.g. going for a 2 hour hike once a week) and/or strength training is usually required. Rating: 1 2 3  5.
This is a hiking trip on the Vermont section of the legendary Appalachian Trail. The AT runs along the same path in this particular section as the Vermont Long Trail - the first long distance hiking trail in the US. You will be hiking in the mountains with constant elevation gain and loss on a trail that is rocky and steep. We're staying in the ski resort town of Killington, Vt.
