Lincoln Gap, VT,
Vermont, Green Mountains,
Working on the NE 67? Join us for a three-day peak bagging weekend as we hike all five 4,000 footers of Vermont. Day 1: We'll meet on the way to consolidate cars and plan to hit the trail at a civilized hour, allowing for drive time. The day's goal is Mt. Killington (9.6mi/2650'), with a possible side trip to Pico. Day 2: The adventure continues! Again consolodating cars, we'll start the day bagging Mts. Ellen and Abraham, then drive to bag Camel's Hump. Though we cannot guarantee that weather will cooperate, if it does, you'll be treated to spectacular views on the summit just in time for sunset, where we'll plan to eat dinner. Formal wear encouraged (be creative); we'll provide some privacy for changing (20.6mi/4,200'). Day 3: Because of our late night return from Camel's Hump, day three also guarantees us a late start time as we grab Mansfield before heading back home (4.6mi/2,800'). After the hike, we may do a group dinner at a local restaurant. The group will camp at a Vermont state park and cook leader-provided breakfasts and dinners. Is this hike for you? We're looking for a small group of strong hikers with experience backpacking or with back-to-back hikes, that can handle the distance and elevation gains listed above. Before applying, please make sure your REGI profile is up-to-date with all of your recent, adventurous hikes!
