Marsh-Billings-Rockefeller National Historic Park (Woodstock, Vermont)
I spent this weekend visiting my daughter in upstate New York and on the way stopped at the Marsh-Billings-Rockefeller National Historic Park in Woodstock, Vermont. The 550 acre park includes a historic mansion and 25 miles of carriage roads and hiking trails through forests, fields, pastures, manicured grounds and gardens.
I hiked a 5.25 mile loop, starting on carriage roads to The Pogue, a manmade 15 acre pond. I then followed another carriage road before branching off on a series of trails. This was a beautiful hike and although the fog obscured views from high points along the trail I did see two deer on the hike.
