This one mile trail combines natural settings with Robert Frost poetry. I loved the combination. It is maintained by Middlebury College. The trails and facilities could use a little work, but otherwise, I truly unique experience. I particularly liked the labeling of the trees. A good place for photographs.

This is a great trail for families with small children, or for anyone that is a fan of Robert Frost! His poems can be found on signs along the trail. It is a very easy trail.

The trail winds through meadows, across rivers and streams and up into the hillside. Nice easy walk/hike that took about an hour. Robert Frost poems are posted throughout. Benches to sit and admire the view and ponder the poems.

On a snowless holiday day this ski season we decided to go for a drive to experience the area and stumbled across this attraction. Easy access, gorgeous scenery and the added interest of being a poetry trail of one of my favourites. I'm sure this place is special in all seasons. The colours on this extremely cold day in December... More

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
