A charming little trail. There were poems posted along the trail, wildflowers and berries growing. The scenery was beautiful, and the trail follows along a creek for a little bit. It took about 1 hour with reading all the poems, and just meandering.

This short (one mile) hike on the Robert Frost Interpretive Trail was a very pleasant walk. The best part was reading Frost's poems that are posted along the trail. Appropriately, the poem "The Road Not Taken" was posted at a junction on the trail. Now I want a book of Frost's poems.

How could you go wrong! I have read Robert Frost poetry ever since the Dominican nuns made us memorize some of his works years ago. Reading some selections while on this trail brought a freshness and nuance that I had not felt before. An unexpected delight!

Worth the effort to get there if you are interested in Robert Frost - but I recommend you deviate from the trail and extend the walk to make the most of your morning/afternoon. Plenty of trails nearby and all loop back down to Robert Frost. I felt they could have down more with the Road Not Taken - but this... More

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.
