The Peter A. Krusch Nature Preserve will feature nature trails that invite exploration. A highlight will be a path to the Cambridge Pines State Forest—one of Vermont’s few examples of old forest, a spectacular and awe-inspiring place that’s not easy to access.
It’s summer in Jeffersonville, and the woodlands along the Brewster River are buzzing with cicadas. Children splash in the gorge below Vermont’s historic Grist Mill Covered Bridge. Visitors flock to the trails beyond, seeking shade and the chance to socialize, from a distance.
Vermont is rich in outdoor places for all to enjoy, but this year has brought a new appreciation. We are continuing to expand recreation for Vermonters and visitors alike. Here’s what we’re working on now—noted mountain bike trails in Lyndon, a new nature preserve in Cambridge, a scenic meadow in Underhill, and a one-of-a-kind trail connector in Newport.
Fairmont Farm conserved 201 acres of land between Route 14 and the Winooski River, and agreed to provide trail access across the recently conserved land, helping to connect a critical section of the Cross VT Trail between East Montpelier and Marshfield. The farm is also working with VLT and other conservation partners to protect and restore a half-mile stretch of the Winooski River in Marshfield.
We’re excited to share our new trail map for Bluffside Farm in Newport. Enjoy a lakeside stroll or a scenic walk through the farm. Check out forestland, pasture, and beach!
