Come take in the beauty of the Taconic Mountains, and this historic 210 year old farm built around 1810. Built by one of the Hubbard family members, it is one of the original homesteads in what is now known as Hubbardton. The walk will take you through Frog Hollow Farm's 45 acres of fields and pastures on the farm, sharing some of the history and what's being done to restore the buildings and the land. See the sheep and cows in the pasture, the chickens and goats roaming the farm, and walk through the fields growing heirloom produce.

The hike will take you to one of the farmers' favorite spots on the farm: the 100 year old orchard. Here you can take in the incredible views of the mountains and nearby Lake Bomoseen while you enjoy an optional picnic that can be purchased and picked up prior to your hike. Picnic lunches will include everything you need for a lawn picnic, prepared by Frog Hollow Farms owner & executive chef - just bring your own blanket.

The farm will be open rain or shine, and the hike does include some steep rolling hills. Dress appropriately for the weather, and wear comfortable hiking or walking shoes. No dogs please, the hike is great for children and families. Wagons recommended for children that may have trouble walking the entire trail – strollers are not recommended.

Free, donations accepted for farm trail maintenance.

Registration not required, but recommended on the Frog Hollow Farm website: Picnics can be purchased in advance, or first come, first served at the farm. To guarantee picnics, please order in advance.

Note: GPS will show Castleton as the town. The farm is near the Hubbardton Battlefield and the Taconic Mountain Ramble State Park.
