Three Green Mountain trails to be closed to snowmobiles

Three Green Mountain trails will be closed to snowmobiles this winter, according to the Times Argus.
The Green Mountain National Forest recently announced three trails — Leicester Hollow, Texas Gap and Boyden Brook — will not open for snowmobile traffic this winter, cutting off trails utilized by the non-profit Vermont Association of Snow Travelers (VAST).

"These are trails that were damaged during the Aug. 6 flood," said Rob Hoelscher, acting district ranger for the Rochester and Middlebury Ranger District. "This will impact VAST to a degree because none of the trails have alternative routes and there are no alternatives that can be made between now and snowmobile season."

Excellent news, peace and quiet in the forest, until the snow melts and the ATVs come back
