The Green Mountain National Forest encompasses more than 400,000 acres in southwestern and central Vermont, including over 11,000 acres in the town of Wallingford. The forest is an attraction for many visitors, providing trail-based recreation and striking scenery as well as providing clean water, diverse vegetation and habitat for Vermont’s native plants and animals.

White Rocks Picnic Area, located off White Rocks Picnic Road, is an area where visitors can enjoy a picnic or head off on the Ice Beds or Keewaydin trail and explore the area’s incredibly unique geological features. For nearly 30 years, the US Forest Service has worked with General Electric volunteers to maintain this site for public use and enjoyment.

Recently, there have been a few incidents at the site that have caused damage to property and resources. The site is not plowed in the winter and so it is gated closed from approximately 12/15 – 5/1. Within the past few weeks, an operator driving a vehicle drove around the gate and proceeded into the picnic area and over the rock barriers creating ruts and damage to the maintained picnic area. Additionally, within the past month or so, the information panel at the site was shot at and damaged.

While Forest Service staff are trying to repair the damages caused by these spiteful acts, we are asking any visitors to the area to be on the lookout for suspicious activity and report observations to the Manchester Ranger District, (802) 362-2307. Thank you for helping us in the stewardship of our National Forest and remember to hike safe.
