Greg Western, Cross Vermont Trail Association

The Cross Vermont Trail is a project to build a multi-use, four season path across the width of Vermont; following the Winooski River and Wells River valleys.  The Cross Vermont Trail will be a 90 mile path connecting towns across the state from Lake Champlain to the Connecticut River - already 30 miles are built and open to the public.

In 2017 Essex Rotary donated $1,800 to build a gate related to the trail. 

The Cross Vermont Trail Association is a formal organization of people who want to help make this trail complete. We are an incorporated non-profit, 501(c)(3), member based and volunteer driven, with two part-time staff members.

Greg Western began as CVTA Director in 2013, after working as a project coordinator on the trail since 2006. He has over 20 years of experience in the field and has previously held jobs with the Green Mountain Club, Appalachian Trail Conservancy, Vermont Youth Conservation Corps, Student Conservation Association, National Park Service, and the Bureau of Land Management.
