The Long Trail is a hiking trail which covers the length of the state of Vermont running north and south 272 miles (438 km) from the Massachusetts border (near Williamstown) to the Canadian border near North Troy, Vermont. The Trail system also contains over one hundred miles of spur trails. In southern Vermont the Long Trail and the Appalachian Trail coincide for over one hundred miles, separating on the east face of Deer Leap Mountain, in the Green Mountain National Forest and within the town of Killington, Vermont|. The Long Trail traverses almost all of the Green Mountains' major summits, including (from south to north) Glastenbury Mountain, Stratton Mountain, Killington Peak, Mount Abraham, Mount Ellen, Camel's Hump, Mount Mansfield, and Jay Peak.
