Nice walk. I started at the lake and walked out to frosts house. It seems that the lake has food to be had in the summer months and there is swimming at the beach. It was winter when I went, people were ice fishing and the trail was slippery. I would not take the shoreline trail where it splits off in the winter as it is more narrow and near the water and a ledge. Robert Frost's house is beautiful and it seems a shame to have perhaps the most famous poet in the U.S. nearby and not visit his home.

Beautiful trail with great views. Well marked. Plenty of fun and water for dogs . Took us about 90 min to do the whole trail .

really lovely trail for an after work jaunt with the dogs. great history, but watch out for the ticks -- they seem to be exceptionally bad in this area for some strange reason.

Great for the 4 year old and dog but I got a lot of ticks so use something strong. Kid and dog went off the trail and did not get any ticks ☺️ but was a great time.

Jack the dog and I enjoyed the walk out to Frost's House. Park at the lake, walk through the construction area...to the woods beyond. Here you will see the sign for the trail. It was a good distance ... It took us about 2 hours total out and back...

A nice serene trail along the banks of Paran Lake with a few short uphill sections to give you a better view of the water and surrounding area. A gentle woodland journey!

This trail starts at the lake Beachhouse and continues up to the Robert Frost home. The round trip is about 4.2 miles. I would strongly recommend this trail it's well marked and has a good combination of level and hills.

Parked at lake but could not find much of a trail. Followed train tracks for awhile and then turned back.
