The expedition will take hikers directly behind the mountain range via the Teton Crest Trail, where they will encounter alpine lakes, deep canyons, and cascading waterfalls. This trip promises to provide an awesome experience amongst the beauty and wilderness of the rugged mountain landscape.

$950 UNL student/CREC member; $1100 general public
Includes: gear, trip insurance, permits, instructors, and meals. Transportation to/from Vermont is not included.

This fully-supported bike tour will complete a 350-mile loop, traversing rolling mountains, passing through fertile river valleys and visiting some of Vermont’s most picturesque villages. The tour begins by meeting up with the trip leaders and fellow travelers in the lively college town of Burlington. While this is Vermont’s largest city, it is anything but impersonal. In fact, no other state’s largest city is smaller than Burlington. Riders will be sure to explore the quaint streets, shops, and eateries of Burlington’s historic Church Street Market Place before embarking on the bike tour loop heading north along the shores of Lake Champlain, the nation’s sixth largest freshwater lake.
