Welcome to the Bolton Lodge and Bryant Camp Fund. Thanks to the Friends of Bolton Valley Nordic and Backcountry along with the Vermont Land Trust and the State of Vermont, 1,161 acres of land in the Bolton backcountry have been purchased from private property owners and added to Mt. Mansfield State Forest. Now the GMC is working with Catamount Trail Association, the Friends of Bolton Valley Nordic and Backcountry and others to restore the two historic shelters on this porperty and create hiking trails that connect these shelters to the Long Trail in Bolton.
A committee formed from staff and volunteers from the above organizations are soliciting donations to help create these trails and restore these shelters by donating to the Bolton Lodge and Bryant Camp fund. A donation page on the GMC website has been established to help bring this effort to completion.
