Voter Brook reopens; Frost Trail gets updates

RIPTON-GOSHEN — Road and parking improvements to the Voter Brook Overlook are now complete, according to District Ranger Chris Mattrick of the U.S. Forest Service, Rochester and Middlebury Ranger Districts. Hikers, birders and nature lovers can get to the overlook by taking the 2.4-mile-long Voter Brook Overlook Trail, an out-and-back route that starts and finishes on the west side of the Ripton-Goshen Road a few miles south of Route 125.

Additional work to install a new panoramic interpretative sign and a new sitting bench are in the works, Mattrick added, but the site is fully reopened.

A few miles away, site work at Robert Frost Interpretative Trail off of Route 125 in Ripton is resulting in that trail being closed for the installation of new curbing, cleaning of the pavement and new paving. To complete that work, the site is scheduled to b closed from July 11-15.
