Hiking and backpacking in the Green Mountains of Vermont has always been a popular outdoor activity for natives and visitors of all ages. Vermont offers a wide variety of trails - from short, relaxing woodland strolls and moderate hikes, to the extensive and challenging mountain trails that extend deep into the sparsely populated Green Mountain National Forest and adjoin the Appalachian National Scenic Trail.
The Long Trail, which follows the Green Mountain Range from the Canadian border to the Massachusetts state line, is world-renowned and offers more than 70 cabins, shelters, and tenting areas along a trail system traversing some of Northern New England's most spectacular wilderness areas.
