Description

Years of Service Help to Create the Catamount Trail, 1997 and 2013

The University of Vermont’s TREK program has helped to maintain the Catamount Trail for 16 years. The trail relies on the many hours of volunteer hours provided by individuals and organizations such as TREK and the Vermont Youth Conservation Corps. Many different ―tools, including hiking boots and nordic skis, have enabled people to maintain and use the trail.

The private landowner agreement is an example of the documents that make access across 165 miles of privately owned land possible. The agreement assures that the landowner is only allowing winter use of a small corridor of land and that the land is preserved for trail use even if the landowner intends to sell the property.
