The majority of our hikes are in the Green Mountain Nation Forest along the Appalachian Trail and Long Trail, the oldest long distance hiking trail in the country. However, some of our hikes are along snowmobile trails, logging roads or beautiful country roads before hitting the trail head.

Our hike destinations vary from day to day; some are to a waterfall, along a scenic river, to a covered bridge, a historic mine, to a beautiful vista or a crystal clear lake. The footing is uneven on the trails with rocks and roots. However some of our trails have easier footing but a few are more technical with multiple roots and rocks.

Each trail is very different but often while hiking we encounter multiple hills gaining around 600 to 1,400 feet of elevation. That's 40 to 60 minutes of climbing hills; some trails will have three 20 minute hills, compared to the advanced hikes which climb uphill most of the time, with some steep sections.

Expect to be on the trail for around three to four hours depending on the group, distance, and trail difficulty. Hiking distances vary between four and six miles and longer if desired.
