Vermont trips expose FOOTies to some of New England’s most beautiful woodlands: the forested hillsides that make up the Vermont Green Mountain National Forest. Many peaks have rocky outcroppings, and stepping into clear open mountaintop air after a hike through the woods is like entering another magical world. Vermont FOOT trips follow the Long Trail where it overlaps with the Appalachian Trail. Built in the years 1910 to 1930, the Long Trail runs the length of the state – 273 miles through the Green Mountains.
FOOT trips in Vermont range from moderate to rigorous. At nearly 4,000 feet, Vermont’s taller mountains can present a challenge, but with a breathtaking reward for the trips that climb them! Four-day Vermont trips are some of the more rigorous four-day trips offered by FOOT.
