The first .3 miles of this 1.2 mile loop is a very easy walk. After that, the path has inclines and declines where you have to step over tree roots, but all in all, its pretty easy. Along the way there are poems of Robert Frost posted so you can read and reflect. You may not find this on your... More

Last November my wife and I traveled to Vermont for a little getaway. We found the Robert Frost Interpretive Trail during a day trip whilst staying at the Robert Frost Cabins in Ripton Vermont. We highly recommend both.

The placement of selected poems in inspiring settings gives fresh appreciation for Frost's work. And a beautiful drive to get there.

This trail is nice and easy. It's more a loop you walk around than a real hike. I loved all of the Robert Frost poetry along the way. There's a nice area with a plaque and a bench. Good for photos. The walk is easy. A word of warning though, continue on toward the parking lot (it's the other half... More

A beautiful trail that combines the beautiful scenery of the Green Mountains of Vermont and the words of poet Robert Frost, whose cabin is nearby. The path goes from marsh to mountain view to forest, and small plaques give samples of Frost poetry that fits the location.

We couldn't make it to Frost's farmhouse further south and so decided to walk the trail near Middlebury instead. It was perfect, got there about 9 am and there was not a soul about. Good easy walking, my mother aged 83 managed well, just needed an arm now and again. Say chipmunks, beaver dams, stunning views over the the Green... More

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.
