In 2019, FOOT will offer both 6-day trips and 4-day trips.
Our 6-day trips take place from August 17-23 and are in the New York’s Catskill Mountains, the White Mountains of New Hampshire, the Green Mountains of Vermont, and the Berkshires in Massachusetts. These regions are all a several hours drive north or northwest from New Haven.
Participants need to arrive at Yale on Saturday, August 17, around 2:00 PM where they will meet their leaders and other members of their hiking group. They will be housed and fed for one night on campus, and then, early the next morning, they will travel by bus to their hiking trail. Participants will return to Yale on Friday, August 23, in time for the campus orientation.
We also offer 4-day trips August 19-23 in southern Vermont, and on the Appalachian Trail in New York, Connecticut and western Massachusetts. You need to arrive in New Haven the afternoon of Monday, August 19, around 2:00 PM. They will also return to Yale on Friday, August 23.
The cost of the 6-day trips is $460, which includes the first night at Yale. The 4-day trips cost $435. We rent vital equipment for those who cannot provide their own.
GENEROUS Financial aid (including equipment) is available for those who would not otherwise be able to participate. If you qualify for aid from Yale, you qualify with us!
Registration is open until July 1st. More information about the trip will be emailed in June/early July.
