Clearly, a road once ran here, long obscured until now. The question is whether Huntington and other Vermont towns should let these sleeping roads lie or claim some of them for the future. Landowners, hunters, hikers, snowmobilers, and conservationists are anxious about the answer. Once roused, some sleeping roads will become public windfalls; others, battlegrounds. Either way, Vermont’s forgotten past will soon touch its future.

    Vermont is an excellent outdoor activity location whether for hunting, fishing, skiing, hiking or snowmobiling. It is shameful that every where you go all you see are No Trespassing signs. It is no wonder that people will try to find ways to legally traverse a piece of property that has been posted by hateful people. It?s like I have mine and I don?t care about anyone else but me.
