The walk explores poems and observations of the naturalist, Robert Frost.

Beginning from behind the homestead of poet Robert Frost, is an easy interpretive trail. An accompanying brochure highlights literature composed and horticulture enjoyed by the famous writer. Visitors tend to linger along the path which passes the famous Mending Wall, a quiet meadow and the Hyla Brook. Incidentally, Frost named the brook for the spring peepers that break the evening quiet with their shrill vibratory sound. The region's landscapes, native culture and speech mannerisms had a deep influence on the Pulitzer Prize winner's eloquent poetry. Much of this distinction and mood has been captured along this tiny trail.
