Trailhead

From VT Route 4 west of Rutland take Exit 5 toward Hubbardton Battlefield. Travel about 6 miles to St. John Road on your left. If you come to the Hubbardton Battlefield, you've gone too far! The driveway to the trailhead will be on the left side after about another 6 miles. Continue down the driveway past the first cattle guard into a pine forest, past the cow pasture, and over the second cattle guard. The parking area is to the left. The kiosk is down by the house.   

Description

From the parking area, the trail goes downhill and passes near the right-hand end of the house (where trail maps are available, no charge). From the field below the house, there are views southwest to the cliffs of Mt. Zion Minor, south to Bird Mountain and the Herrick Mountains, and east to the central range of the Taconic Mountains. The trail continues downhill to an arched bridge and the Japanese Garden, with pools and waterfalls.
