The Vermont Section of the Appalachian Trail

CnT has historically maintained 25 miles of the Appalachian Trail in our next-door-neighbor state of Vermont. The maintenance of this section of trail has recently been transferred to the Green Mountain Club. The DOC still has plenty of history and information to share about this section of Vermont trails.This section of trail is quite beautiful, close to home, and features 3 lovely shelters, but there is hardly any published information about it. 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!
