Trails have been built by volunteers, including the Boy Scouts and the Vermont Youth Conservation Corps, and are maintained by a dedicated volunteer group. Although this park takes its name from a hurricane that struck the area in the late 1700s, there is ample evidence of the effects of a more recent occurrence: the hurricane of September 21, 1938 toppled many old-growth white pine trees whose giant trunks remain today. There are other areas with enormous ancient trees still standing, including white pine and red oak.
