White Rocks Gateway

Located in the rolling mountains of Wallingford, lie 481 acres of unprotected forests and a portion of the dramatic quartzite cliffs of White Rocks. Hikers who frequent this much loved section of the Green Mountains are treated to exceptional views as they traverse the side trails that lead to the Ice Beds, White Rocks National Recreation Area, and the wilderness of the Appalachian National Scenic Trail and the Long Trail. We have a much-awaited opportunity to secure public access to a rare old growth forest and protect the views from the Appalachian Trail and Long Trail by adding this property to the Green Mountain National Forest. That’s why we’re uniting the local community to support this work. If we are unable to conserve this land, it could be posted against access, fragmented, or developed.
