Barnes, proprietor of I ""d t,',, lnlemt,,ll ''lp I" 1 the Barnes' camp In Smugglers' Notch, i X lp,v ,''m,l"5 u is expected Hint the lodge will be ready ror use ny the first of .Tub, If not earlier, Present plans aie to build so that the lodge will provide camp accommodations for about 20 people. For some tlm the Burlington section of the Green Mountain club has been planning tn develop several new trails and open up that section of the Green Mountains which Includes the Lake of the Clouds, the- Cave of the Winds, and other beauty spots of Mount Mansfield, the wildest and most picturesque scenery to be found anywhere In Vermont, If not In New England. In the past, this part of the Green Mountains has been ac cessible only to a few, owing to the fact that there have been no trails through there which the average mountain climber wanted to tackle. The moun tain slopes off very precipitously from the chin down to the Lake of Hie Clouds, ond the common way to get to this beau tiful little lake has been to go all the way to the hotel, then out over the ridge to the chin and by a circuitous route down over the chin to the lake. With the new development of trails, It Is planned to open up a passable route directly from Smugglers' Notch to the chin. Including the Lake of tho Clouds, and other points of Interest. The enve of the Winds and the Luke of the Clouds will be connected, also, by a direct trail, giving the mountain climber the oppor tunity to get excellent views out over the ledges Into Smugglers' Notch below, a view thnt can be obtained from no other point. The new lodge Itself will aid materially In this development, not only providing a plare for the workers to slay while they arc building these new trails, but also offering a haven of rest to the weary mountaineer who Is making trips over the Long Trail. The lodge will be built on land owned and donated by the State of Vermont. After the lodge has been presented to the Green Mountain club, a rare-taker will be maintained through tho co-operation of this club and the State fores try department, the samo as Is now be ing done nt tho lodge on top of Camel's Hump. This lodge, when finished, will be ac cessible only by mountain trails, not by any wagon or automobile inads, and It will not compete In any way. therefore, with the new Mount Mansfield hotel project, which Is being planned on the mountain for this coming summer. In fact, It Is expected that thn lodge will be an inducement for parties from tho hotel to, tnlte trips Into this scenic sec tion nf the mountains for the day, re turning to tho hotel at night. The lodge will be located about two miles from the hotel. With the proposed development of new trails, which will bo carried out under the direction of the trails and shelters committee of thn Burlington section of the Green Mountain club, this part of the mountain near the lodge will become the natural pnrk of I ho Green Mountain region, and will be excelled In beauty by no scenery in New England. Further more, this land Is owned by the State and Is practically worthless except for such scenic purposes ns those Indicated There arc several old trails In that vi cinity which have been partially de veloped In tho past, which will proba bly be cleared more thoroughly and opened up for mountain travel. Among these are the old foresters' trail and tho Judge Haselton trail which enter Smug glers' Notch near the same spot, the for mer branching out toward the chin, while the latter branches toward the nose. Then there are v the Halfway House trail and the Lo'ng trail which enter t)ils same section df the moun tains, though not approaching quite the fame points. Ellhu B. Taft, who ls to give the lodge to the Green Mountain club, Is an ar dent mountain climber, a life member of the Green Mountain club nnd presi dent of the Burlington section nf tho club. He Is also n member of other mountain clubs, including the Sierra club and also a member of the Geograph ical society of Chicago. In his younger days, Mr. Taft did considerable mountain climbing In many parts of the world.
