Act 250

An unresolved State of Vermont Act 250 Jurisdictional Opinion currently hangs over the future of the trails. 

For more information read this Vermont Digger Article from 2019

Encumbering free public trails with Act 250, a  permanent, expensive and restrictive permitting law, punishes landowners for hosting recreation.  Meanwhile State land, logging operations and agriculture are exempted from this same process. 

Because of Act 250, the trails were closed in 2019 by the owner,  and then temporarily reopened to biking in 2021.  A court hearing is expected to occur in 2023, which will influence the fate of the trail system.

Victory, Vermont
