Overview

Vermont's Long Trail is America's oldest long distance trail. The 273-mile footpath was built between 1910 and 1930 by the Green Mountain Club. It begins on the Massachusetts-Vermont border and travels north to the Canadian border, along the way summiting the Green Mountains' highest peaks: Stratton Mountain, Killington Peak, Mt Abraham, Camel's Hump, Mount Mansfield, Jay Peak, and many other smaller mountains. For the first 100-miles, the Long Trail coincides with the Appalachian Trail. Anne O'Regan, a popular presenter for AMC, will share stories and slides from this magnificent and challenging trail. She thru-hiked it twice, once in 2012 (south to north) and again in 2013 (north to south). Anne previously spoke at the AMC - Bangor Chapter about her Pacific Crest Trail thru-hike. Her book, Tamed. A City Girl Walks from Mexico to Canada on the Pacific Crest Trail, will be available the evening of her talk and is also available on her website: anneoregan.com
