Only a small portion of the Appalachian Trail (about 150 miles)
lies in Vermont, and two-thirds of that is along the Vermont's Historic
Long Trail. The Appalachian Trail enters
Vermont at the Massachusetts border and runs consecutive with the
Long Trail over the Green Mountains for a considerable distance
before branching off and heading for the Connecticut River, New
Hampshire and the White Mountains.
