Description

This division of The Long Trail starts from the southernmost terminus at the MA/ VT border. It travels moderately to Seth Warner Shelter.

The trail begins to climb after passing beneath the first set of powerlines. *There is a small blue-blazed trail (on the right) that will lead you to an old seasonal spring box. The trail passes beneath another set of powerlines, then the Scrub Hill ponds. It continues to Consultation Peak, then descends. It crosses over VT Corridor 9, where west could potentially take you out to Bennington. In a short distance from here, you'll reach Congdon Shelter.

The trail climbs over Harmon Hill, where there is an excellent view to the west. It descends a massive stone staircase as it approaches Route 9. Stay right (at Route 9) and head towards the bridge.

Division 1 of The Long Trail ends here and Division 2 begins.
