I was pleasantly surprised. I was expecting a gravel or paved loop that would be done in 30 minutes or less. Instead, there were forest and meadow paths. Markers identified the different plants growing, and plaques with Frost's poems were located all along the trail. Benches were placed along the trail and there were no strenuous sections. There is a... More

A very pleasant trail to take. The bridge goes over the river and the trail goes along the side of the river at points. Along the trail are poems of Robert Frost that are interesting to read if you are so inclined. There are benches to rest along the way and enjoy the quiet of a beautiful setting. There is... More

A wonderful reflection of Robert Frost, through his many quotes, viewed as you walk this scenic trail near one of his homes.

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.
