My first time back since it was reopened after flood damage. Still not back to the same level, but it is a wonderful easy walk with placards of his poems.

This is a beautiful easy trail for people who are looking for a nature walk but are not looking for a strenuous hike. The trail is fairly level all the way through. All along the trail are some of Robert Frost's most popular poems.

This is an easy 1 mile trek over river, through woods and meadows with Robert Frost poems along the way. Will do it again in fall but beautiful any time of year.

Easy hike through nice wooded area, with poetry interspersed throughout the trail. We went in early November and were the only ones there, but it was past peak foliage.

A mile-long loop trail that never gets very steep or technical. Its purpose is more for enjoyment and contemplation. It takes you over a river, through woods, and through a meadow. Actually, the meadow part got very narrow so stuff was brushing against my legs...More

My 17-year-old daughter was reluctant to do this walk but quickly came around. Alively and easy trail with beautiful signs of some of Frost's poems to enhance the contemplative feel. We went after a big snow started to melt so our footwear could have been...More
