Learn the basics of preparing to hike the country's oldest foot path, the Vermont Long Trail and the skills necessary for any thru-hiking adventure. Free for REI Members / $30 for Non-Members

So you're considering a thru-hike along the Long Trail or one of our other National Scenic Trails? Here in Vermont, thru-hiking consists of traversing the Long Trails 272 miles in one go; comparatively, an end-to-end hike could be finished in one stretch, in sections, or in several day hikes. An end-to-end hike could also take several years. For thru-hikers, there's specific preparation you'll want to explore, and our very own Joe Pelletier, an experienced thru-hiker will be your inspired guide to get you started. In this class you will learn the basics of planning your trip, meal preparation, gear choice and other aspects of long distance hiking. Make the most of your experience on the trail with this informative class.
