    En route to Stowe, you stop at the fully functional Sugarbush Farm to sample fresh cheeses and maple syrup (with the opportunity to purchase).

  • Days 4-5 White Mountains National Forest

    You'll walk the backbone of the Northern Appalachians, the White Mountains of New Hampshire. Many of the trails here are above the timberline, offering wonderful views of this impressive range. On arrival, you delve straight into the beauty of this area with a planned hike to Lonesome Lake. The trail leads to the southern end of Lonesome Lake with an additional 0.5 miles to an Appalachian Mountain hut and the option of extending further. Most of the trail is tree covered so will be shaded from the sun, making it even more of an enjoyable experience.

This area is well known to hikers all over the world, both for its stunning scenery and constantly changing weather. Challenge the elements here or catch the Cannon Mountain Aerial Tramway, which began operating in 1938 and was the first passenger aerial tramway in North America. From the top, there are panoramic views of three states, so it is mostly definitely worth a trip.

  • Days 6-8 Baxter State Park

    You travel from one of the most well-known segments of the Appalachian Trail, to the most pristine. Baxter State Park is home to Mount Katahdin, the finishing point of the 3,500 km long Appalachian Trail. Wander and enjoy the largest of the most remote wilderness areas in the eastern USA. Here you can truly get away from it all on footpaths that wind through undisturbed forest and along the crystal-clear lakes and streams of northern Maine. Keep both eyes and ears open for the chance to encounter some of the wildlife that thrives here. This tranquil wilderness is virtually untouched since the days of the first settlers, over three hundred years ago. As you pause to reflect on the solitude of this beautiful place, it's hard to imagine that two-thirds of America's population lives within a day's drive of the Appalachian Trail. Ton day seven you hike Mt Katahdin via Hunt trail, which is a strenuous hike with more than 4,150 ft. elevation gain and taking approximately 10 hours. The rewarding views on this trail are some of the finest in New England, but should only be attempted by those fit enough. Trail: Mt Katahdin via.
