Description

Section 28 of the Catamount Trail crosses through the towns of Craftsbury and Lowell, in the north-central part of the state. Over the past 24 years, the trail has changed in length, location and appearance, as is discernible in the section description of the accompanying guidebooks. This section of trail is preserved by easements between more than 25 private landowners and shares trail use with VAST and Craftsbury Outdoor Center. Recently, the Atlas Timberlands Partnership conserved 4 miles of trail across three sections of the Catamount Trail that spans 4 towns – Craftsbury, Eden, Elmore and Lowell. The Partnership, created in 1997 by the Vermont Land Trust and the Nature Conservancy, manages approximately 23,000 acres of forest land. This is the largest timber holding in Vermont and is host to the newly conserved segments of the Catamount Trail.
