Our PEAK BAGGING PROGRAM is for those advanced hikers will have the opportunity to hike all five of Vermont’s 4,000 foot mountains. Those who summit all of Vermont’s 4,000 footers are awarded with a certificate of accomplishment. This accomplishment in the hiking community is referred to as a peak bagging.
