The Moosalamoo Region abounds in beauty. You don’t have to wander far to experience the peace and tranquility that the area has to offer. A stroll along the country roads and waysides of the MNRA is a pleasant way to recharge. 

The Robert Frost Interpretive Trail commemorates Robert Frost’s poetry. Several of his poems are mounted along the trail in the woods and fields. Blueberries, raspberries, and huckleberries grow in an old field at the far end of the trail. The Forest Service maintains the old fields along this trail with prescribed burns to preserve the scenic, open appearance of the area. The trail is an easy walk. The first 0.3 miles crosses a boardwalk over a beaver pond and goes out to the South Branch of the Middlebury River. The boardwalk section is accessible and suitable for wheelchairs.

Spirit in Nature Trails offers ten different paths that invite you to immerse yourself in nature. Each path is 1/2 to 2 miles long and includes posted sayings along the way to remind you how deeply connected faith tradition is to nature. Learn. Open year around, dawn to dusk, in winter for walking, snowshoeing and cross-country skiing.
