The Appalachian Trail covers 150 miles in Vermont with about 100 miles of the trail coinciding with the Long Trail along the crest of the rugged Green Mountains.  The Long Trail was the first long distance hiking trail in the USA as construction began in 1910.  The Long Trail travels about 272 miles in Vermont. 

For north bound thru hikers, the mountains are getting bigger again.  You haven't seen mountains this high since Virginia and it's just the beginning as the White Mountains of New Hampshire loom ahead.  Your climbing peak after peak in the Green Mountains.  The Green Mountain Club (GMC) asks hikers to avoid the trail during mud season, which runs from April to late May. The GMC maintains the 150 miles of the Appalachian Trail in Vermont as well as many other trails including the Long Trail.

The GMC collects fees at the high use campsites along the trail in Vermont. The fee is $5 per person per night. The fee sites include Stratton Pond Shelter, North Shore (Stratton Pond) Tenting Area, Peru Peak Shelter, Griffith Lake Tenting Area, Little Rock Pond Shelter & Tenting Area. Caretakers are present throughout the season from May to October at several locations and will "educate" you about the Leave No Trace practices.
