Ascent Trip Report

The Long Trail (LT), a South-North primitive "footpath in the wilderness", is one of the oldest long-distance hiking trails in the USA. Conceived in 1910 the trail extends some 266 miles from the MA border to the Canadian border, following the crest of the Green Mountain Range. In the tradition of other New England trails the LT is steep, boggy, and rugged.

This day's hike was my very first on the LT. My wife Rose dropped me off at the TH on rte 105, West of Richmond, for southbound hike on the LT and picked me up at rte 242 West of Montgomery Center. I would take 7 years to complete the LT (see TR of 1990-10-25)
