Stratton Mountain has three claims to fame. It is the tallest peak in southern Vermont, and the ideas for both the Long Trail (LT) and the Appalachian Trail (AT) originated here. In 1909 James Taylor envisioned a “long trail” that would link the main peaks of the Green Mountains from the Massachusetts border to the Canadian border. Twelve years later, Benton MacKaye expanded the idea to encompass the entire Appalachian Mountain chain from Georgia to Maine.
