A graduate of Boston College with a bachelor’s degree in psychology, Tiffany Hustis later earned her master’s in school counseling, after spending several years in the human resources industry. Now looking to work as a recruiter or high school counselor after 11 years as a stay-at-home mom, Tiffany Hustis enjoys traveling, including to the Green Mountains in Vermont.
The Green Mountain range crosses Vermont from north to south and includes a 370,000-acre national forest. Its highest peak, known as Mount Mansfield, stands at 4,235 feet. The area offers spectacular scenery, ranging from craggy mountains in to picturesque villages located nearby.
Green Mountain National Forest encompasses almost 500 miles of trails. These trails include the Long Trail system, consisting of 272 miles of trail following along the Green Mountains’ main ridge and continuing to the border of Canada.
Originally built over 20 years by the Green Mountain Club beginning in 1910, the Long Trail remains the nation’s oldest trail for long-distance hikers. The trail inspired the Appalachian Trail, which follows the Long Trail for approximately 100 miles.
