Ski by a wide, open field with views of the hills of New York and stop to watch horses eat some hay. Snowshoe by a handsome farm and watch the cattle eating. Enter into a maple grove and see the taps in the trees for the collection of sap, which will be boiled down into syrup. These and other experiences await visitors to the Merck Forest and Farmland Center in southern Vermont. Located on 3,150 acres of hilltop working farm and forest land, the center is an environmental educational organization in the Taconic Range. Recreational and educational programs abound on its 28 miles of snowshoe and cross-country ski trails.
