The long trail from the Stratton Arlington road to the US Forest rd on the other side of Bromley Mt is one of the best hikes. The Stratton pond shelter gets pretty crowded as it intersects with local trails from Manchester/Bennington but the tenting area...More

Everybody has to do a part of this iconic trail don't they? A ranger put us on to this part which starts right by the main road. We did a 5 mile round trip to Spruce Peak and back to follow up our earlier saunter...More

We went onto the Long Trail near Rutland, VT. It was a great hike, as we made it to an Appalaichan Trail shelter before turning around to complete the hike. Great climb.

The long trail is a beautiful Vermont hiking trail and all of us can access it as a day hike, over night, or by walking long sections- or the entire length.

What a fabulous way to spend three weeks. Far from the bustling crowds, arising at dawn in the hopes of seeing moose, you'll endure challenging hardships in order to traverse this rugged pathway. You'll need to bring your own breakfast. The swimming pools are not...More

I love the Long Trail, this trail is professionally taken care of with volunteers that really care about the trail. I plan another hike the last week of October. If you love to hike plan an over nighter on the Long Trail!!

We only did a small section of Long Trail doing the stretch up to the summit of Jay Peak from 242. This is an excellent small hike that you can complete in around 3 hours depending on how much time you want to leave to...More

I noticed people taking 3-5 hour hikes on the trail. I'd like to do a loop in the Little Rock Pond area. My question is are there little places to get into the trails from different towns and are there areas for a day hike? What is the closest to Little Rock Pond. I don't wanna camp in the shelter area we only have a day and 1/2 in Vermont and I want to do the hike one the full day and something else on the 1/2. I've never been to Vermont or hiking, but my boyfriend has with his family when he was younger and wants to go again.
