The Long Trail

Called "the footpath in the wilderness," the Long Trail is the oldest long distance hiking trail in the United States and actually served as the inspiration for the Appalachian Trail. It was built by the Green Mountain Club between 1910 and 1930 (the club was actually formed for the expressed purpose of building the trail), and it runs 270 miles along the ridge of the Green Mountains from the Massachusetts to Canadian borders. The Long Trail also has some 175 miles of side trails, and features70 overnight shelters for hikers. 100 miles of the Long Trail in the southern part of Vermont also coincides with the Appalachian Trail.
