Though only about a half hour’s drive from places like the state capital of Montpelier and St. Johnsbury, Groton State Forest has a remote feel to it. The forest is used by hikers, naturalists, snowmobilers, snowshoers, and cross-country skiers, while supporting four-legged wildlife, such as black bear, moose, deer, mink, and beaver, as well. There is room for every sort of creature in its 25,000 acres, making it the second-largest contiguous landholding by the state. The Osmore Pond Loop is a hiking trail that encircles the shores of the pond for about 2 miles. The path is clearly blazed in blue and has a few wet areas with narrow footbridges to cross. It is an outing made for both the family or those looking for an easy few hours out in the warming winter sun. Surface quality: Ungroomed, but skier and snowshoe packed.
