Thousands of us experience the Green Mountains up close every summer with a day on the Long Trail. Many hundreds more spend even more time on the trail, taking a few days to hike and
spending the nights at a shelter along the way. Today, in our series, "The Long Trail: Vermont’s Footpath Through History," we learn what it’s like to overnight on the trail.
VPR’s Jane Lidholm talks with Jonathan Wahl and Leah Hunt, known, on the trail, as Rough and Tumble, two retirees who spend winters in Florida and summers in Vermont, where they can often be found on The Long Trail.
All this month, VPR is celebrating the 100th Anniversary of the Long Trail through our series, "The Long Trail: Vermont’s Footpath Through History." Today we hear from some of the people who spend time on the trail, to hike, camp or care for the historic footpath.
