Barr Hill Nature Preserve Professional Review and Guide
"A short nature walk in the northern highlands of Vermont. “Off the beaten path” acquires a whole new meaning at this 256-acre sanctuary in remote north-central Vermont. In their quest to reach the Barr Hill Nature Preserve, visitors motor along a busy barnyard lane where placid herds of Holsteins often claim the right of way. The uninitiated even learn to open and close an electric gate before arriving at a designated flat spot for parking in a field. Hard-core types searching for rugged trail adventure should scratch Barr Hill off their list. While thrillseekers may consider this path just a loop through an overgrown pasture, hikers with a curious bent will delight in a naturalist’s retreat that imparts inspiring lessons."
