Just came back from spending a 3 day weekend with Appalachian trail adventures hiking in Vermont. What makes this outfit not your regular run of the mill hiking club is its owner and operator John . His enthusiasm, dedication and love of sport and area can rarely be matched. His unique approach to every guest guarantees that you will have... More

This tour exceeded our expectations! The mile long hike up to the cave was a really refreshing workout in a beautiful forest, including a rock scramble directly up to the cave, and the cave itself was challenging and very different than the usual. John was so friendly and accomodating, letting us pick and choose which parts of the cave we... More

John and Leslie were incredibly attentive hosts for our father/daughter hiking trip. They tailored the experience based on our interests and abilities and remained flexible as our preferences changed throughout the day. They catered to our every whim - nothing was too much for them. They chose beautiful hikes and kayaking excursions and made it incredibly easy for us. I... More

I just came back from a four-day adventure with Appalachian Trail Adventures, and I have to say the experience exceeded my expectations in every way. John and his staff of guides--Leslie and Betsy--were amazingly attentive, doing their utmost to customize the experience for each guest. And the experiences themselves were awesome, including hikes on the Appalachian trail, kayaking on local... More

Our guide John was friendly, reliable, and very knowledgeable. His company was easy to do business with and John was always professional. John ensured that we had all the equipment we needed for our adventures and he kept us safe. Can't wait to return!!

I was looking for a place where I could leave my head and just enjoy some physical activity w/o having a travel companion. John made that possible while he was flexible and gave you options ..he took care of all the details. Leslie, one of the guides, was so encouraging and made me feel very comfortable. We had a blast... More

Went with a girlfriend for a weekend of hiking and had a great experience with John and his colleague, Leslie. Great hikes, afternoon kayaking and good company along the trail! Definitely recommend ATA.

I consider myself a decent athlete, so I was interested to see what the ATA staff would plan for more advanced hikers. I was quite pleased. John's guides are experienced hikers, skiers, kayakers, and all around outdoors people. John himself is incredibly attentive to detail: he actually reads the questionnaire you fill out, and he plans hikes that are appropriate... More

I decided with a girlfriend to plan a hiking trip for a week and we weren't sure what to expect! We couldn't be happier with our experience with ATA. We purchased a package that included full day guided adventures, all of our food as well as our lodging... They made it so simple! We are girlie girls but wanted to... More
