Nice trail for the most part, steady inclines. The only complaints would be the bugs were unbearable and the trail was pretty muddy due to recent rain. Other then that I’d definitely come back. There is access to the water as well!

Very easy walking trail. We read all the poems. Our first poem reading hike. My dog enjoyed it too. Only saw 2 other people on the trail.

A pleasant trail with wild berries and a brook. For a more “moderate” experience, be sure to climb the hill to the upper trails (see my photos of the “Afternoon Delight” and “Sundown” trails up there).

A nice nature walk with the added nicety of reading some of Frost's greatest poems in a pretty setting.

Wonderful nature walk with added bonus of Robert Frost poems. Take as much time as you need to read the poems and reflect on them. Benches available by some poems. Well marked and maintained trail. Would do this again.

Trail was well maintained. Very easy to hike. There were 2 other trails that went up the mountain for a longer hike if you have more time. The only disappointment was hearing the traffic because it's so close to the main road.

Great easy trail for a short hike in the woods. Places to stop and read Robert Frost poetry along the way. Lovely places to stop and swim. Note there is no garbage service so please take any refuse including dog stuff with you! Also stay on the marked trails to prevent damage to the fragile plants.

This trail is perfect for a mid-fall walk. The foliage is absolutely stunning and the walk is just the right length (about a mile). Take your time and enjoy it!
