    Strangely - Hunter just has the go at your own risk sign up at the North area. Although I've heard the town has asked people to not ski due to saving the volunteer emergency medical people from potential exposure. We walk to the snow at the base of north daily - I haven't seen anybody skiing... It's strange - theres a shit ton of snow still there.

    Ah, good point. The State has asked folks to stay off the "state owned portions of the LT". I think that Bucklin is a feeder trail to the LT, and if it is on state land, I think that the same recommendation applies.

    That said, it is a real gray area. They want folks to recreate, but not doing high risk activities or congregating in groups.

    And honestly, there are not going to be police at the trailheads. Use common sense and stay off for now.

    It is considered a side trail in division 5... https://www.greenmountainclub.org/th.../side-to-side/

    I'm not personally familiar with Bucklin. In theory it could be open if it is entirely on private land as the state has no control over that. But any parts on public land are closed. TrailBoss's link would cover this topic (in general, not specific trails). But it is also mentioned on GMC's website.

    Technically speaking, the state of VT can't close the long trail at K because it is also the Appalachian trail.

    Umm...you do realize that the AT is also closed in VT (and many other states)...right?

    (4/7/2020) The Appalachian Trail/Long Trail and side trails on state lands are closed by the Vermont Department of Forests, Parks, and Recreation
    The ATC also recommended (and requested) formal closure of the ENTIRE AT on public lands.

    You shouldn’t be on trails this time of year anyway in order to prevent damage.
