The Vermont Section of the DOC-maintained Appalachian Trail

Presumably, you have already heard of The 50 -- the fifty miles of the Appalachian Trail that CnT maintains between Hanover, NH and the Beaver Brook trail in North Woodstock, NH [the edge of Mt. Moosilauke]. However, did you know that CnT ALSO maintains 25 miles of the Appalachian Trail in our next-door-neighbor state of Vermont? That's right: in addition to the ever-popular "50", we are in charge of the lovely but less well-known "25", stretching south from Hanover all the way to Woodstock, VT. Although this section of trail is quite beautiful, close to home, and features 3 lovely shelters, there is hardly any published information about it -- for example, it is not in the D.O.G.! Hopefully this Wiki article will change all of that and will make it easier for Chubbers to enjoy this beautiful section of trail. Although it's 25 miles long, there are a ton of roads splitting it up into nice little dayhikes; or you can do some backpacking and stay in the shelters! The great thing about the VT section of trail is that there are no mountains -- it's all rolling hills, grassy fields, and other bucolic Vermont landscapes, making it an easy way to get into the great outdoors.

Happy hiking!
