As New Life says, “Nobody does hiking better than us.” They offer three levels of hiking trails: Beginner, intermediate and advanced. The beginner hike ranges from 2-4 miles long and takes you through the country, mountain streams and farms. It’s a slower paced workout that allows you to enjoy the beautiful Vermont outdoors! Intermediate hikes range from 4-6 miles through ancient mines, waterfalls and along the Appalachian and Long Trails. Hike leaders guide the group to make you feel comfortable along the diverse terrain while also providing a challenging workout. The advanced hike is longer than the intermediate hike and covers tougher terrain while offering unforgettable views from the elevations of Vermont. Steeper ground and a much faster pace, provide a great workout while breathing in the fresh mountain air.
