Huntington Community Forest
Huntington Center, Vt.
The Huntington Community Forest (HCF) is a 245 acre municipal forest located in Huntington, Center Vt. bordered by Brewster Pierce Elementary School, Main Road, and Trapp Road and with an additional small parcel bordering the Huntington Recreation Field and the Huntington River. The HCF was acquired in 2020 with generous support from the Trust for Public Land, U.S. Forest Service, Vermont Land Trust, the L.L.Bean Community Foundation and numerous other entities and individuals.
The Huntington Community Forest is open to a wide range of recreational uses including hiking, biking, skiing, and snowmobiling (on the designated VAST trail).
The Huntington Community Forest Stewardship Committee (CFSC) is tasked with developing a Stewardship Plan, with updates at regular intervals, which addresses uses, management, and guides decision-making. The CFSC is the principle stewardship and management entity for the HCF.
