Groton State Forest, Cross Vermont Trail

August 4, 2019 - August 10, 2019

Event Navigation

Help build the Cross Vermont Trail – a four season multi-use trail spanning the width of Vermont. We are “connecting communities, their schools, and the natural areas in between.” The crew will build small bridges, drainage ditches, stone structures, and surface parts of the trail with gravel to make it universally accessible. Contribute to the foundation of a sustainable trail that is connecting communities across the entire state!

Area and Attractions

Northern Vermont is a picture postcard landscape of small villages, side by side with rolling pastures, surrounded by forested expanses of hills, bogs, and glacial lakes. We will work in and around the 25,000 acre Groton State Forest. We will camp in a state park with running water and hot showers. From the campground there is easy access to lakes with paddling and swimming, and to hiking trails with summit views. It is also a short drive to the small but culturally vibrant towns nearby- and the Ben & Jerry's ice cream factory! Volunteers will have many choices for their free day. The camp site is nearby to numerous lakes, with swimming beaches and boat rentals. Many hiking trails also nearby to camping. It is an easy day trip by car to larger mountains (such as White Mountain National Forest) or to towns with restaurants and shops (like Montpelier, capitol of Vermont.)
