YM Long Trail / Appalachian Trail Backpacking Weekend

Trip dates: Friday, July 13, 2018 12:00 AM to Sunday, July 15, 2018 12:00 AM

Join us in Peru! Peru, VT, that is, for a 23-mile backpacking weekend on the Long Trail as it overlaps with the Appalachian Trail. The longest day will be 13 miles, with a total of 5300' elevation gain total and 4300' elevation loss over the course of the weekend. We'll hit Glastenbury Mountain, which has some fantastic views. This is a great opportunity for strong hikers who are prepared to hike significant mileage with backpacking gear, even if they don't have much backpacking experience. Participants are expected to bring their own meals and snacks, and should have their own backpacking gear. Carpooling and tent-sharing will be available.
