Vermont's Original Rail to Trail: The Long Trail and Logging Railroads

Preston Bristow
Friday, April 26, 6:30 p.m.
Montshire Museum, Norwich
Hosted by the Upper Valley Ottauquechee Section

Vermont's logging railroads lacked the scale of New York's Adirondack Mountains, where no fewer than 22 logging railroads reached deep into old growth forests. Vermont also lacked villainous timber barons like New Hampshire's J.E. Henry, the notorious White Mountain railway "wood butcher" famously quoted as saying, "I never see the tree yit that didn't mean a damned sight more to me goin' under the saw than it did standin' on a mountain." Yet logging railroads did penetrate the Green Mountains, and three are intertwined in the history of the Long Trail.


27th Annual James P. Taylor Outdoor Adventure Series
For more than a hundred years the Long Trail has inspired Vermonters to seek adventure in the Green Mountains and beyond. The James P. Taylor Outdoor Adventure Series, named after the man who first envisioned the Long Trail, brings such adventures to you through stories, photographs, and videos. Join us for inspiring presentations that will transport you to mountains and waterways near and far as we celebrate twenty-seven years of the Taylor Series-a great way to spend an evening!

Tickets are available at the door only. Proceeds support local sections and the GMC Education Program.
