APPALACHIAN TRAIL MAP VERMONT

APPALACHIAN TRAIL MAP VERMONT

This famous trail coincides with the Long Trail (previous entry) for 98 miles, from the Massachusetts border to Sherburne Pass, where the Appalachian Trail turns east and heads toward New Hampshire.

The trail crosses the southern unit of Green Mountain National Forest, as well as state-owned areas and private lands. It traverses a number of mountains over 3,000 feet, some of which offer fine views, and passes several beautiful mountain ponds. Difficulty varies from easy to strenuous.

Camping Regulations: Trail shelters and designated camping areas are found every few miles along the trail. At several locations there’s a caretaker on duty and a small camping fee is collected. Where the trail is on private or state lands, camping is restricted to established sites.

On National Forest lands camping is allowed almost anywhere, except in a few areas where authorized sites must be used. When choosing nondesignated sites, campsites should normally be at least 100 feet from water sources and 50 feet from the trail.

Campfires are permitted at most established sites, and are allowed in much of the National Forest, but they’re prohibited in a few locations. A stove is recommended for cooking.
