This loop is a tour of the charming town of Woodstock, which is a popular visitors’ destination not far from the New Hampshire border. Our route starts at the Billings Farm & Museum, billed as a gateway to Vermont’s rural heritage and one of the finest operating dairy farms in America. You’ll pass by the Ottauquchee River and through the center of town, which has a very pretty main street with quaint shops and restaurants. Once outside the town, enjoy lovely back roads with farmland, foliage, and a few hills. Start the run at either the Billings Museum or the center of Woodstock.
The Marsh-Billings-Rockefeller National Park is also located in Woodstock [map overview]. Looking for a short run with stunning views? A 2.5 mile out-and-back leads to a beautiful clearing where you can view the Ottauquechee River Valley, the Billings Farm and Museum, and Mount Tom. For a more challenging run, the Mount Peg Summit Hike [map found here] is definitely worth the initial climb…but it evens out after a bit!Route Map
