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.

Found out information that I previously did not know. Tried to read Marsh's book, not an easy read. Wish I was as rich so I could help the environment and humanity also

Our time was limited in Woodside so after visiting the town, we were advised to visit the Mansion. At the National Park across the Billings Farm. It was an interesting tour by the ranger and the film was very well done. The tours, given on the hour, were limited to about 12 guests so it would be wise to make... More

We spent a lovely fall afternoon touring this working farm, watching a great short movie about its history and strolling the grounds. A great kept park, with the tour of the Mansion the peak of our visit. We enjoyed every minute of our visit here. Probably not on the top ten of National parks it is a little hidden gem... More

Great tour of the mansion by the Woodstock ranger with the French accent. The film about Woodstock and its people and philanthropists was a Academy nominee. A must see. The Billings farm is a productive, working farm. Did not have time to walk on the parks trails. Beautiful autumn colors.
