EPISODE 16: THE LONG TRAIL

In Episode 16, Glenn (aka The Helmet) and I do a live interview from his historic 1858 schoolhouse in Barton, Vermont.  The topic is the 272 mile Long Trail which in 1930 was the first major long distance trail to be completed in the United States and it set the standard for the other major long distance hiking trails in America.

In the podcast, The Helmet and I talk about the history and some mysterious events on the Long Trail.  We also discuss interesting peaks (including Mt. Bromley, Killington, Stratton, Mt. Mansfield), our mishaps and adventures on the LT, and  how the route compares to his thru-hike of the John Muir Trail in California (chronicled in Episode #1).

The Long Trail shares 100 miles of the Appalachian Trail in Southern Vermont, and many A.T. thru-hikers are nearly half-way to completing the route.  So here’s your inspiration!
