All in all in terms of states, Vermont to me would be the clear winner.

Parts of upstate New York (notably communities around the east side of Catskill Park including New Paltz, Saugerties, Woodstock), Capital District (Albany/Schenectady/Troy extending north towards Glens Falls), and Ithaca, have more liberal outlook and fine hiking nearby.

Also western Massachusetts - Northampton, Pittsfield areas - a little more built up and hills/mountains slightly lower, than Vermont but not greatly dissimilar.

Also Frederick County, MD and Jefferson County, WVa are relatively liberal for the mid-Atlantic and relatively close to hiking venues. One county further out any direction from DC gets you into pretty hard conservative areas though.

Unless you plan on hiking while passing out liberal pamphlets and/or singing anti-conservative songs I fail to see where the whole liberal/conservative ideology have anything to do with hiking trails.

As a side note, why are all these types of threads looking for liberal areas? Are liberals as a whole afraid that they might catch some conservative ideas like a disease or something?
