Wilderness Areas
Body: 

One of the greatest attractions to Vermont for locals as well as visitors is the abundance of wild places. The opportunity to view a wide diversity of wildlife, and explore an almost endless number of waterways is just minutes from anywhere in the state. And thanks to the Wilderness Act, which was signed into law by President Lyndon B. Johnson in 1964, Vermont now has 8 wilderness areas that will be protected for future generations in perpetuity. We visited several of the Wilderness Areas to get a brief overview from staff members of the U.S. Forest Service.

Northwoods Trail
Body: 

Vermont’s Northeast Kingdom has long been known for its vast working forest and rugged remote mountains. Thanks to a partnership between landowners, the state and outdoor groups, it’s also becoming a destination for deep woods hiking. A group of young trail blazers with the Northwoods Stewardship Center are busy creating a new long distance hiking trail, which will stretch through one of the wildest corners of Vermont.

While many anglers practice catch and release fishing it's a Vermont tradition to keep some for the table. That's why there's a new effort underway hoping people take the bait on trying the fresh flavors of fish from Lake Champlain.
