A northern Vermont mountain peak is being named for Charles Doll, who helped cut the last stretch of the Long Trail in 1930. The Green Mountain Club founded the 272-mile trail that follows the Green Mountains from Massachusetts to Canada, and led the drive to have a 3,400-foot mountain in the towns of Jay and Richford officially named Doll Peak.
Will Wiquist of the Green Mountain Club tells the Rutland Herald that other Vermont mountains bear the names of people who helped blaze the trail. But Wiquist says it was important to include Doll for cutting the final stretch of the Long Trail that connected it to Canada. Doll was a University of Vermont geologist who lived from 1898 to 1990.
