Photos of Logging in Pisgah

The following photos of the Hubbard Hill trail — located in the western section of the park near the town center of Chesterfield —  were taken in April 2014 following logging in 2013. The photos show damage to the trail after spring  snow melt and illustrate how the lack of buffers between logged areas and the trail impact the recreational experience. Acreage was clearcut in small patches bordering this trail, which leads to beautiful western views of southern Vermont’s Green Mountains.
