GREEN MOUN­TAIN NA­TIONAL FOR­EST, VT

Fol­low the 272-mile Long Trail along the spine of the Green Moun­tains this month and you’re guar­an­teed top-notch vis­tas of slopes painted red and orange. But leave a de­tailed itin­er­ary at home be­fore you go: In the last cen­tury, half a dozen hik­ers have sim­ply van­ished from the area now known as the Ben­ning­ton Tri­an­gle.

DO ITPick up the Ap­palachian/ Long Trail from VT 9 (42.885110, -73.115580) and take it north. Mileage mon­sters can thru-hike 20.4 miles to Kel­ley Stand Rd. (43.061171, -72.967758) be­low Strat­ton Moun­tain. It’s 9.1 miles to the God­dard Shel­ter and 9.4 to the 3,748-foot Glas­ten­bury sum­mit. Short on time? Do part for an out-and-back.
