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 Falls, 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.

The Long Trail passes through Montgomery Vermont, before bringing hikers to traverse Jay Peak. From there, the Long Trail extends into North Troy, where its trek 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.


Hikers will find along the Long Trail in Northern Vermont rugged peaks, pristine ponds, alpine bogs, hardwood forests and swift streams.


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.


The Long Trail Guide is the official guide to the Long Trail and its network of side trails. The Long Trail is marked by two-by-six-inch white blazes. Along the trail, intersections are usually marked with signs.

Double blazes may mark important turns. Side trails are blazed in blue and signed


Along the Long Trail in Vermont, you'll also find 70 primitive shelters, the Long Trail Patrol and volunteers. Need help along the trail? Look for Caretakers who are happy to give advice to hikers.
