October 6, 2018 – Pine Hills Park – Vermont

Today Shadow, Wilma, My Parent, and I Adventured to Pine Hills Park in Rutland, Vermont. Pine Hills Park is a 325 acre park offering 16 miles of trails including trails for mountain biking, snowshoeing, and hiking. The main land was donated to the city of Rutland by Henry O Carpenter in 1921 with the idea of creating a developed park.

We had a foliage filled and refreshing Adventure to the Pine Hills Park in Rutland, Vermont. We entered the park with some interesting structures greeting us, before quickly arriving at a large park map. The park provided brochures which included a detailed, and color coded-trail map. The trail started at a long boardwalk, leading us to a massive, and scenic boulder. We of course took took some family photographs before heading on our chosen trail. The trail was simple, but gorgeous on this lovely Fall day. The signs of Fall were clear with many yellow and orange leaves scattered throughout the trail. The trail looped around, flowing up and down the forest land. We were elated to have my parents join us on this Fall Adventure. My Dad walked Shadow, while my Mom sought out the perfect photographs along the trail. We took our time, discussing trees, basking in the wonderful Fall, family day.

After our walk we found some nearby picnic tables to eat lunch before heading to our next Adventure. I will have to admit, my Dad found this little Park, and we could not have been happier with this find. Definitely a Park I wish was local, but glad we could explore it on our Adventure today (Rating: 4, Company – 5).
