 2,000 acres added to Camels Hump State Park
From today's online Burlington Free Press:

"The recent purchase of 2,085 acres in Duxbury by The Trust for Public Land will boost Camels Hump State Park's amenities, access and wildlife, according to a news release Monday from the California-based nonprofit."

The rest of the article is here:

Impressive that 38 donors has to all get together on that. I wonder if there was already a network of trails here before.

Good question. When I look at the map below, and try to "overlay" it on the map in the news article it seems like this recent addition is to the east of the Monroe trail.

That there are multiple donors doesn't surprise me as this has been the pattern in previous land purchases near or part of the Long Trail.
