ANNE O’REGAN – VERMONT’S LONG TRAIL
Anne O’Regan will present at the Camden Public Library on Thursday, March 9th at 7:00 pm on her experiences hiking Vermont’s Long Trail. Vermont’s Long Trail is America’s oldest long distance trail. The 273-mile footpath was built between 1910 and 1930, by the Green Mountain Club. It begins on the Massachusetts-Vermont border and travels north to the Canadian border, along the way summiting the Green Mountains’ highest peaks: Stratton Mountain, Killington Peak, Mt Abraham, Camel’s Hump, Mount Mansfield, Jay Peak, and many other smaller mountains. For the first 100-miles, the Long Trail coincides with the Appalachian Trail.
Anne will share stories and slides from this magnificent and challenging trail. She thru-hiked it twice, once in 2012 (south to north) and again in 2013 (north to south). Anne previously spoke at the Camden Public Library about her Pacific Crest Trail thru-hike. She published a book about her experience on the PCT, which is available on her website: anneoregan.com
