Hiking Mt. Mansfield to celebrate the 100th anniversary of the building of Taft Lodge, the largest and oldest structure on the Long Trail.  Built by volunteers from the Green Mountain Club in 1920, lodges like this helped to encourage people from cities to connect with the outdoors. Those connections and unique experiences on the Trail continue to this day.
