Pride Hikes: Vermont Youth Conservation Corps (VYCC)

LGBTQIA++ hikers (and birders) are gathering for a spring outing at Vermont Youth Conservation Corps (VYCC). VYCC’s 400+ acre campus is a combination of many things – conserved forests, organic vegetable farm, and training space for hundreds of Corps Members. The trails take you through our farm, up to a ridge, then across the property and back down again. You’ll see lots of interesting trail work, including stone stairs, bridges, and drainage structures, that have been built over many years by many Corps Members.

Trail/accessibility information: Our walk will be at an easy pace and will cover less than 2 miles. We are flexible about the trails we choose based upon the needs of the group. The trails are a mix of surfaces, from farm roads, to rocky narrow trails, and old logging roads. The trail climbs from VYCC (several hundred feet), traverses across the property, and then descends on the other side above the farm. Walking the full loop might take between 30 minutes and 1 hour 30 minutes depending on the speed of the group. There are additional trails that can also be explored, which are out-and-backs from the main trail system. More information about VYCC's trails  is available here: https://www.vycc.org/about/visit-our-campus/ Please wear weather-appropriate clothing and bring snacks and plenty of water! 

Gender inclusive indoor bathrooms are available inside the West Monitor Barn.  There are a number of Porta potties on VYCC campus, including two near the parking lot. 

If you require accommodations or have questions about accessibility, please contact Audubon Vermont at gwendolyn.causer@audubon.org.
