Event Details

Take a photo journey on Vermont's 270 mile Long Trail. The Long Trail is the oldest long-distance trail in the United States. The Long Trail follows the main ridge of the Green Mountains from Massachusetts to the Canadian border as it crosses Vermont's highest peaks. It was the inspiration for the Appalachian Trail, which coincides with it for one hundred miles in the southern third of the state. As it winds its way to Canada, the Trail climbs rugged peaks and passes pristine ponds, alpine bogs, hardwood forests and swift streams. The Long Trail is steep in some places, muddy in others, and rugged in most. Learn why this trail has the reputation for being the nation's most difficult long distance trail mile for mile.

Andy Niekamp is from Kettering and has a passion for long distance hiking. He has hiked the entire Appalachian Trail end to end three times. Andy is founder and leader of the DaytonHikers.Org group, the largest outdoor recreation group in Dayton.
