The Appalachian Trail

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.
