I'm planning on dropping my car at the Northern Terminus in mid-September and hiking NOBO to it from Johnson in 5-6 days after a shuttle there from my son who lives in Stowe.

I'm looking for a safe place to leave the car somewhere between Journey's End and North Troy.

Is the trail head safe or is there a public parking spot in North Troy, or somewhere in between? I don't need to spend another night there....
