Join the Adventure
The Long Trail is a 272-mile hiking trail that runs the length of Vermont continuously from the Massachusetts border to the Canadian border. The Green Mountain Club built it more than 100 years ago and maintains it to this day, along with the Appalachian Trail in Vermont and the Kingdom Heritage Trails in the Northeast Kingdom of Vermont, totaling nearly 500 miles of hiking trails. GMC is the go-to source for hiking information in Vermont; with maps, guidebooks, and expert advice to help you plan your next adventure, whether it’s an easy afternoon jaunt or an “End-to-End" thru-hike of the entire trail.
It Takes a Village
GMC’s Long Trail Patrol has been building and maintaining trails since 1937. You may see these highly skilled professionals at work rebuilding the Burrows Trail on Camel’s Hump or constructing a new overnight shelter at Stratton Pond. Caretakers educate hikers and protect environments on busy summits and campsites. Learn about their hard work, and thank them as you pass by!
