  • Interesting place with exhibits and lots of trails. Worth a stop with the Billings Farm, but will need close to a day to really see both places.

  • I didn’t do any of the trails here so I couldn’t comment on those but I did do the walk through of the first floor of the mansion. They only let so many in at a time and you must wear masks, not sure....  more

  • This was a real highlight to our Vermont trip. Museum and movie are very worthwhile to visit. Do not miss tour of manor house, Complete with furnishings of all 3 historical owners. I was fascinated with biography of Mr. Marsh, in particular. As a graduate of Syracuse University College of Forestry, we studied his writings as the virtual father of the American environmental conservation movement. Photo is of Gorge, which is nearby.
  • Easy hiking up Mountain Road to the Mt Tom summit, with more challenging trails branching off. Beautiful views along the way and at the summit. Mountain Road is your best bet if you are with a dog, and Precipice trail might be a little be a challenge with your pooch in tow. Highly recommend.
