This is an easy trail to take children on. Stop and read the peoms he wrote while living there. I would recommend it for a Sunday walk. Autumn is especially nice with all of the beautiful colors mother nature gave us.

This trail offers the traveler an opportunity to experience the poems of Robert Frost as they were meant to be enjoyed. At a fork in the trail, there was a placard with "The Road Not Taken", adjacent to a birch tree was a poem on birches, overlooking the meadow was a poem on outdoor fields, and so on. It was... More

We traveled through the trail on a cold November afternoon. My husband and I were the only people in the park. It was still very beautiful with the light dusting of snow. We were able to take some amazing photos along our hike. I'm sure its even more beautiful during the warmer months!

Just off scenic Rt 125E, this easy to walk 1.2 mile looped trail takes you past a beaver pond, over stream, up into woods, and through pastures; plaques with Frost poems are mounted along the trail and benches provide a place to sit and contemplate.

Drove from Burlington, beautiful scenic drive! Limited bathroom availability on the way. There is a rustic outdoor toilet at the start of the trail...as a woman it made me want to run away screaming but we made it work. Enough about that. The trail is gorgeous! Bits of poetry on signs here and there, markers identifying the plants. Easy to... More

This is a very easy hike and good for adults and children. The paths look as if they are left to nature, but in fact seem well-maintained. The hike can take as long or as little time as you want. There are plenty of places to stop and admire nature in all its unspoiled beauty. We used to bring our... More

Liked the concept but could have done more with it. Facts about Frost and more linked poems, especially The Wood Pile.

This is a lovely area - a nice, easy trail sprinkled with excerpts of Robert Frost's poetry. The trail is short (about a mile) but passes through some marshy area, woods, over a stream - a variety of environments. The first part of the trail is a wheelchair accessible loop. There are benches scattered throughout - a nice place to... More

This easy walk is through some beautiful countryside. Some of the walk is on a raised boardwalk and would be fine for people with mobility issues. The walk passes through forest and meadows and the poems are chosen to reflect the views. Really enjoyable.

Nice pleasant stroll through the woods. This is a non challenging one mile walk with some of Frost's poems posted along the way. Great little stop on your travel.
