    Roger Haydock Is Pinnacle’s

    At the 2017 Annual Meeting, WHPA Vice Chair Sarah Waldo presented Roger Haydock, Supreme WHPA Trail Blazer, with various colored surveyor tapes to facilitate his future trail efforts.

    At the 2017 Annual Meeting, WHPA Vice Chair Sarah Waldo presented Roger Haydock, Supreme WHPA Trail Blazer, with various colored surveyor tapes to facilitate his future trail efforts.

    WHPA Co-Chair and Trail Steward Chair Sarah Waldo was clearly delighted to recognize Roger Haydock as the Pinnacle Association’s Volunteer of the Year at the Annual Meeting on April 30, 2017.  According to Sarah, “Roger has spent countless volunteer hours hiking the Windmill Hill Ridgeline (even prior to the formation of WHPA), painstakingly searching out the most attractive and sustainable trail routes, and designing and often building many of the Pinnacle Association trails.  WHPA is so appreciative of the time he has dedicated to expanding and improving the wonderful trail system we enjoy today.”  

    A past WHPA Trustee and avid hiker (also ice skater!), Roger worked in documentary film production for PBS, traveled the world working on NOVA programs, 60 Minutes, Olympics, Ken Burns Films, and more.  He puts his extensive knowledge of Vermont and New England geology and his knowledge and enthusiasm for special features to use in scouting and designing our trails.

    Thank you, Roger!
