A fully accessible recreation path and boardwalk along the shores of Lake Memphremagog is complete and open to the public, the Vermont Land Trust announced today. The new mile-long trail on Bluffside Farm crosses Scott’s Cove, connecting downtown Newport to trails that run north to Canada.
For the sixth consecutive year, Bluffside Farm in Newport will be open for archery deer hunting. Applications are due by September 24. As per Newport City ordinance, deer hunting at Bluffside will be archery only, including during rifle season which coincides with the mid-November time period. All hunters must carry written permission and hunt in designated areas away from neighboring houses.
A new recreation path and boardwalk on the shores of Lake Memphremagog is in the final stages of completion. The resulting 7-mile trail system will run from downtown Newport towards the Canadian border along Lake Memphremagog.
