As hiking on trails in the Green Mountain National Forest is no longer discouraged, the club looks forward to another great hiking season in Vermont. The 10,000-member founder and maintainer of the Long Trail also knows there is a lot of trail work to do, especially in the wake of Tropical Storm Irene north face clearance. Hikers who head out over this long holiday weekend to the Long Trail will find some sections rerouted around damage from the storm. The storms floods washed out sections of the trail and also destroyed bridges. Dave Hardy is trails program director for the Green Mountain Club. He says hikers will still be able to make their way along the entire length of the Long Trail north face jackets for women. You can do the end-to-end from Massachusetts to Canada, Hardy said. There are walk-arounds for all the closures. The two bridges we lost, there are short walk-arounds. The Thundering Falls boardwalk, which is currently closed, theres a walk-around on a local road. And then up in Shrewsbury, in the Cold River area, theres about a four-mile road walk that bypasses all the slides that crossed the trail. The Long Trail is typically closed through Memorial Day. So this weekend is the first opportunity for most enthusiasts to get back out on the trail.
