As we recently drove home through Vermont, I was looking for short hikes we could do to break up the driving. I came across Robert Frost Interpretive Trail in Ripton, Vermont. Not too far away from Lake Bomaseen State Park, one of my favorite Vermont State Parks. The day we visited the trail the parking area was closed, as well as a portion of the trail due to construction. We were able to park along the road.
There is a small kiosk with a map and an outhouse.
The trail starts out to the left of the kiosk and goes down a gravel pathway to a bridge.
The fun part of this trail is there are Robert Frost poems along the path. My daughter enjoyed reading the poems along the way.
The path is a little under a mile and goes through the woods, then a field and the along a stream and loops back to the bridge where you started. The trail provides some beautiful views.
The day we visited it was pretty busy with a couple large groups of people on the trail. If you are in the area and enjoys Robert Frost Poems I highly recommend you check out the trail. It is easy, trail, more of a walking path good for beginner hikers and those with children.
