Hiking in Vermont is one of the things that you should do in Vermont. (Reference Post: 100+ things to do inVermont by Solo Friendly ) In Green Mountain State, we choose Breadloaf Wilderness for an overnight hiking. – Thanks AMC for the recommendation! We liked your hiking books. – The description was — “The largest of the Wildernesses in the Green Mountain National Forest, Breadloaf takes its name from Breadloaf Mountain, the highest point in the area at 3,835 feet. Within the boundaries you’ll be able to climb Vermont’s Presidential Range: Mounts Wilson, Roosevelt, Cleveland, and Grant.” However, it was not easy to get to the trail head due to hurricane Irene. The driving required lots of detour on the dirt roads. The hurricane was long gone, but the damage was still vividly alive in places in Vermont.
Finally we spent two days at Breadloaf Wilderness. Actually, we camp one more day because we just liked the place so much. The stream near the trail head was one of the most beautiful spots of the roadtrip.
Anyway, here are photos of Breadloaf Wilderness hiking in Vermont.
This is how one of many roads in Vermont look like. They washed out bad, bridges were broken, and trees fell down. Hopefully they restore well.
Pick up fresh vegetables at local farm stand was one of many pleasures of Vermont. Weigh, price, payment were all self-service. This is the reason why our camping meal were all extraordinary.
Ready to go!

Scenery of Green mountains of Vermont. There were only two view points along the Long Trail. But those were worth to look at.

Don’t forget to feed yourself while hiking the big mountains! Mmm… pepperoni!
