October 15, 2022 – Marsh-Billings Rockefeller Trail System – Vermont

Today Wilma, Gus, and I Adventured to the Marsh-Billings-Rockefeller National Park in Woodstock, Vermont.  This National Park was named for George Perkins Marsh, and Frederick Billings.  George Perkins Marsh was one of the nation’s first global thinkers, while Frederick Billings, was an early conservationist.  The park includes:  20 miles of trails, horseback carriage rides, a Victorian mansion, and a museum.  It is also a popular location for cross-country skiing in the winter.

We had a marvelous Adventure to Marsh Billings Rockefeller Park on this gorgeous Fall Day. I was so excited to return to Marsh Billings, one of my favorite New England parks, especially eager to see the colors of Autumn. On our Adventure today we mostly explored the trails, including: the Mountain Trail, Poque Loop, and endless side trails. There were many others on the trail, and all dogs we saw, except one were on leash. The colors of the leaves were mostly yellow and orange hues, and the brilliant sun was often shining through the trees. We walked and walked, enjoying the smells and signs of Fall. We spent about four hours hiking and exploring. Although I included a couple photos from the general park area, the majority of the photographs were taken on the trail system. It was an absolutely perfect day and will forever be a special one. So glad we had a day full of exercise, on this perfect Fall Day (Rating: 4.5)
