1917 GMC Long Trail Guide

Inspired by a talk Mike Debonis gave this week at Wake Robin in Shelburne (photos below) about his ‘retro hike’ which relied on the 1917 and 1920 Long Trail Guides, I scanned in the 1917 guide for your reading pleasure. Perhaps a long lost relative of yours was a member? Maybe the trail went though your property? Find the LT guide here (18 page PDF file – opens in a new tab).

Have you ever wondered what it was like to hike the Long Trail a hundred years ago? GMC Executive Director Mike DeBonis will tell tales from his 2017 retro end-to end hike, celebrating one hundred years of the Long Trail Guidebook. You’ll enjoy the fun of hiking the trail in 1917 but without the wool, bugs, and canned fish.
