Traverse the length of Vermont and climb its major peaks! This challenge includes all peaks whose summits lie on (or very near) the 272-mile Long Trail in Vermont, the oldest long-distance trail in the US. The Long Trail follows the spine of the Green Mountains up the length of Vermont from Massachusetts to Canada. It's known as a "rugged footpath in the wilderness" -- expect rocky, rooty trail and constant elevation swings. The tamer southern 100 miles of the Long Trail overlaps with the Appalachian Trail, then the northern half climbs classic peaks like Abraham, Camel's Hump and Mount Mansfield, the highest in the state at 4,393 ft. The LT is maintained by the excellent Green Mountain Club, see more here:
