Your Virtual Nature Walk: Marshfield Rail Trail
Photography and Writing by Sean Beckett
Our Virtual Nature Walks bring you to Central Vermont locations to explore the natural world as we transition into spring. Given the current events, we'll be choosing locations that are easy to get to, have wide trails or dirt roads, and are popular (but not too popular) places for our community to get some fresh air, exercise and "Vitamin N."
This little-known stretch of the Plainfield-Marshfield railroad bed in the corner of Groton State Forest is heaven for birders, bikers, paddlers, and all explorers of springtime in Vermont. With ponds, cliffs, hardwood forests, and a wide, flat trail, this spot is among the most diverse and accessible nature walks in Central Vermont.
