The Long Trail is a 272-mile hiking trail that stretches continuously from the Vermont-Massachusetts border to the Canadian border. The Green Mountain Club built it more than 100 years ago and maintains it to this day. GMC is the go-to source for hiking information in Vermont. They have 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 system.
