Wondering what we’ve been up to? The pandemic may have slowed some things down and halted others, but here at VLT we’ve been busy!
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.
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!
For the fifth consecutive year, Bluffside Farm in Newport will be open for archery deer hunting. Applications are due by September 26. As per Newport City ordinance, no firearms are allowed on Bluffside Farm at any time, including rifle season which coincides with the late November time period. All hunters must carry written permission and hunt in designated areas away from neighboring houses.
