Backpacking & Hiking Getaway
Vermont invites you to relax, unwind, and get in touch with Nature. A trip on foot is a spectacular way to enjoy Vermont’s unspoiled scenery. In 2020, Inn to Inn (Country Inns Along the Trail) is celebrating our 45th year offering the best hiking and walking vacations in Vermont. Explore countless options, from famous hiking trails to hidden mountain paths, and pamper yourself at some of Vermont’s finest country inns. We have created vacation packages which provide just the right blend of challenge, adventure, and relaxation, and are delighted to custom design one just for you.
Independence is an attractive feature. Our popular self-guided hiking and walking trips offer you maximum flexibility. All trips are tailored to your exact wishes — number of days, number of inns, scenery and terrain. We’ll give your our suggestions for hikes near each of your inns, but be sure to make full use of a great resource while on your trip: each innkeeper will provide you with maps and advice about their own favorite hikes in the area near their inn, as well as their knowledge of current trail conditions.
The hiking/walking season runs from about the second week of May (though some trails like the Long Trail are closed until Memorial Day to let them dry out from mud season) through about the third week of October. The only 2020 dates we will not be able to book you at any inn in our network are Friday and Saturday, October 9 & 10. This is the Columbus Day holiday weekend, and the inns are not able to facilitate the hiking program for those two nights.
