Description

Bluffside Farm was conserved by the Vermont Land Trust (VLT) in 2015. In 2018, VLT started partnering with Memphremagog Trails to provide access to a groomed loop through the fields and forests of the property. The trail can be accessed either from the farm or from North Country Hospital. It is relatively easy and usable by beginner skiers. For trail conditions, visit the Memphremagog Trails website
