We knew nothing about the environmental and ecological underpinnings of this site but the video in the visitor center was excellent. Marsh, Billings and Rockefeller were certainly the vanguards of some very important movements. The home was not yet open which is a phenomena we encountered too often in our New England travels, even in mid-May! That said, a ranger... More

We went for a hike on Sunday morning on the Mountain Trail and it was fantastic! Nice, quiet, and serene, the Mountain Trail ends at the Pogue, which was beautiful, and we opted to take the additional Pogue Loop trail before heading back. I definitely recommend going!

I knew *nothing* about this place before touring it during a visit to Woodstock. Touring the house & farm where interesting and informative but .... the short documentary video depicting the history of the farm and the three families really captivated me - - - especially its contribution to the environmental & sustainability culture in current times.

I have visited the Park many times in the past.. It is very educational for kids brought up in the cities.

Fascinating house once owned by the Rockefellers. Definitely worth a visti. It's run by the National Park Service which always does a great job.

We hiked from the Woodstock Inn up the switchbacks to a lovely overlook then on to the Pogue (pond). We then looped back down the gravel roads/ski trails to Billings Farm and back to town. Great day hike!

Great wide open carriage trails in a lovely wooded setting. A pretty steep hike up the mountain, but many offshoots that don't go up as steeply. Dog friendly if the dogs are on leash

My wife and I just returned from a 10-day vacation in Vermont (our first trip). We were fortunate to tour the Marsh-Billings-Rockefeller national historic park. Included was a tour of the farm, a visit to the farm museum, and a tour of the Marsh-Billings-Rockefeller mansion. The tour was very well done, with a lot of history concerning how the three...

I loved learning about the history of the area and the Marsh-Billings-Rockefeller families. Our tour guide did a great job and the surroundings are beautiful.

We had a very nice 2 1/2 hour hike through the beautiful fall foliage at the park. Our guide was very knowledgable and fun. This is not a difficult hike for someone older or young children.
