If you are traveling along SR 125, also known as the Middlebury Gap Scenic Road, this is a very pleasurable place to stop, rest and soak up a bit of American literature. The short trail is only 1 mile and the first .3 mile is handicapped accessible. As the trail travels along to the Middlebury River, you see patches of huckleberries and blueberries while having the pleasure of reading several of Robert Frost's poems. These are mounted along the route of field and woodland. Note: The Forest Service maintains all the old fields along this trail with prescribed fire to preserve the scenic open appearance of the area.
Directions: From Ripton, VT, Travel east 2.1 miles along the very scenic SR 125. There is a parking area on the south side of the road.

Active and Adventure Review of Robert Frost Interpretive Trail
- Short trail with plenty of resting benches, ornamented by snippets of poetry.
Family Review of Robert Frost Interpretive Trail
- There are bathrooms at the beginning of the trail, but they are rustic.
At about 1.2 miles of mostly even terrain, the trail is easy to navigate even for young kids, and part of ita little less than half a mileis on a stroller- and wheelchair-accessible boardwalk across a beaver pond. Kids will love hunting for blueberries and huckleberries when they're in season. Expect to give yourself about 30 to 45 minutes to complete the trail, unless you get inspired to grab a seat and write some poetry of your own.(-) Close
