Marsh-Billings-Rockefeller National Historical park is one of over 400 parks in the National Park System and is Vermont’s only National Park! Walk through one of Vermont’s most beautiful landscapes, under the shade of sugar maples and 400-year-old hemlocks, along winding woodland carriage roads and trails. On the gentle slopes of Mount Tom you will find mountain pastures, a mysteriously-named pond, and spectacular views of nearby hills and valleys.

With 20 miles of trails winding their way through 550 acres, Marsh-Billings-Rockefeller NHP offers visitors the chance to experiences the unique wildlife of Vermont. White-tail deer, wood ducks, barred owls, fishers, and painted turtles are just a few of the species that call the park home. Whether you are on the hiking trails or on the mansion porch, the opportunities to see, and hear wildlife are limitless.  Download List of Hikes available for visitors to explore.
