Notable Points of Interest

Montgomery is known as Vermont's Covered Bridge Town. Its unique geography required many bridges, and as recently as the 1940s there were thirteen covered bridges within the town's limits. Today there are six covered bridges within town limits, and one which straddles the town line with Enosburg, the most of any town in the country.

 

The town was named after Revolutionary War hero General Richard Montgomery on March 15, 1780. The town's charter was approved in 1793,

The Long Trail

Carved in Vermont by the Green Mountain Club between 1910 and 1930, the Long Trail, that extends along eastern United States, is the oldest long-distance hiking trail in the United States. The Long Trail travails along the main ridge of the Green Mountains from the Massachusetts-Vermont line to the Canadian border as it crosses Vermont's highest peaks. It inspired the Appalachian Trail, which coincides with it for one hundred miles in the southern third of the state.

LTPosterfinal_GMC.jpgThe Long Trail passes through Montgomery Vermont, before bringing hikers to traverse Jay Peak. From there, the Long Trail extends into North Troy, where its soujern as a United States hiking trail ends.

The Long Trail is steep, muddy, and rugged. Novice and expert alike will enjoy the varied terrain of the trail as it passes through the heart of Vermont's backwoods.

With its 273-mile footpath, 175 miles of side trails, and nearly 70 primitive shelters, the Long Trail offers endless hiking opportunities for the day hiker, weekend over-nighter, and extended backpacker.
