Albert Einstein is quoted as having once said, “Look deep
into nature, and then you will understand everything better.” For nature lovers
there is nothing more spectacular than spending time outdoors in a breathtaking
place. Here in Vermont we have some of the most amazing scenery and this summer
we encourage you to spend some time exploring the Moosalamoo Nature Trails.
The Moosalamoo
National Recreation Area
is roughly 16,000 acres of beauty. You will find
more than 70 miles of maintained trails—choices for the beginner walker all the
way up to rugged cliffs for the seasoned hiker. If you are looking for an easy
stroll, we suggest checking out the Robert Frost Interpretive Trail. You will
appreciate finding several of his poems mounted on plaques along the trail and
a peaceful walk that takes you out to the south branch of the Middlebury River.
There are ten different paths in the Spirit in Nature Trails that are ½ to 2
miles long and are open from dawn to dusk all year long.
If you are into more of a hike, you can find a number of great
trails with varying levels of difficulty. Click on this map to read a list of trails and
descriptions that include length, elevation changes, difficulty level, and
features on the trail to look for. When going out for a long walk or hike,
remember to tell someone where you are going, bring plenty of water, a snack or
two, and wear appropriate shoes or clothing.
Our guests truly enjoy all that this area has to offer and
the summer is a fantastic time for a getaway. You can book directly online and
once you are here owners Dan and Michele can help you create the perfect Vermont
outdoor adventure.
