This will be the 5th Great Adventure. It will be the most daring one yet. The Oldest of the Long Distance Hiking Trails in the Country is our Target. That is correct Vermont's Long Trail. 7 Days of hiking. 2 day drive each way. Camping along the way. Plan for this one.
Here are current plans:
1) Taconic Trail 36 miles overnight from Petersburgh, NY to Williamstown, MA
2) Long Trail & maybe the AT part of Long Trail
3) A mmonoosuc Ravine Trail and possibly the Jewell Trail near Berlin, NH
Taconic Trail is near where I used to live and the raw beauty of the mountains is breathtaking, plus we will be there during the fall foliage season. In climbing the tallest peak in the Presidential range we can expect to possibly see some of the worlds' worst weather.
The Long Trail is where America's modern day long distance hiking trails all started. It travels up the backbone of Vt along the Green Mountain Ridge.
