Topic: Hiking Vermont's Long Trail End To End
Presenter: Andy Niekamp
Presentation Description: Take a photo journey on Vermont's 270 mile Long Trail. The Long Trail is the oldest long-distance trail in the United States. The Long Trail follows the main ridge of the Green Mountains from Massachusetts to the Canadian border as it crosses Vermont's highest peaks. It was the inspiration for the Appalachian Trail, which coincides with it for one hundred miles in the southern third of the state. As it winds its way to Canada, the Trail climbs rugged peaks and passes pristine ponds, alpine bogs, hardwood forests and swift streams. The Long Trail is steep in some places, muddy in others, and rugged in most. Learn why this trail has the reputation for being the nation's most difficult long distance trail mile for mile. This presentation will not last more than one hour.
8:00 pm-9:00pm - Go Shopping. Get A 20% Discount!
