We are now offering a more extensive hiking program for WIC/KIC graduates. Students will spend 3 days at Gould Lake preparing for this 13-day hiking trip. The trip will begin in Cold River, Vermont and finish at Mount Mansfield. Constructed between 1910 and 1930, in Vermont, the Long Trail is the oldest long-distance hiking trail in the United States. The Long Trail follows the Green Mountain ridge from the Massachusetts/Vermont state line to the Canadian border.
What sets the Long Trail apart for students, especially those who participated in Outdoor Pursuits, is the experience of “end-to-end hiking”. Students will form a strong connection to both the area and their group as they follow the trail to their final destination, Mount Mansfield.
