The animals you see on this hike may not qualify as wildlife, but your kids will enjoy seeing the animals on the farm all the same. The Merck Forest and Farmland Center is a community-supported education organization maintained for the purposes of conservation and learning. Nestled in a picturesque Vermont setting and home to a working farm and sugar house, 28 miles of hiking and cross-country ski trails are available for exploration on the center’s 3300 acres. The trail described here takes you up to a viewpoint, but many other hiking trails suit different interests and abilities. Cabins, shelters, and tent sites are available for overnight stays; call or write to get a permit before you go.
