Service Trip

The service trip is a 4-day FOOT trip in Vermont. Instead of backpacking from site to site, the group stays at the same campsite each night and hikes each day to a worksite on the trail. FOOTies practice trail maintenance on Vermont’s Long Trail alongside volunteers from the Green Mountain Club. During the service trip, FOOTies learn to safely work with the tools and materials used for trail maintenance and to view the trails on which they hike in a new light. For more information about volunteers from the Green Mountain Club of Vermont, please visit the volunteer section of their website.
