HINESBURG, Vt. (WCAX) - A new self-guided tour of the Hinesburg Town Forest showcases the state’s efforts to create responsible forest management practices.

Our Ike Bendavid spoke with Ethan Tapper, the Chittenden County Forester with the Department of Forests, Parks and Recreation, and Andrea Shortsleeve, a habitat biologist with the Department of Fish & Wildlife, about the outreach effort.

To take the virtual tour, visit the HTF’s trailhead at the end of Economou Road in Hinesburg (online maps may show it as being in Huntington).  A sign by the trailhead kiosk will guide you through the download of the free Avenza Maps app and a map that will allow you to navigate to each stop on the tour using your smartphone.
