One of Vermont’s Finest Treasures
Located in the Green Mountain National Forest is one of our favorite Central Vermont Tour stops – the Robert Frost Interpretive Trail.
“There is nothing commercialized or exploitative about the use of Frost’s name here. In fact, the trail and picnic area are easily missed if you’re traveling in anything but low gear, and the road to his farm is not even marked. There is no profusion of hotels or restaurants, or even any brochures about the area. Like Frost’s poetry, the effect of these places is restrained, but powerful.” Read More
The trail is a perfect monument to Frost for several reasons. As it is only a mile long with no steep ascents, young children and older people can have the experience together. Also, in addition to the poems, the birches, beeches, spruces and other trees — as well as various kinds of ferns — are identified by markers, enabling city people to know henceforth what they are looking at in local forests. But most important, if you take your time reading the poems, looking closely at the landscape and listening to the sounds of these lovely woods, you may sense the process by which northern New England’s natural characteristics fostered Frost’s poetic realism.
