This guided hike to our replica Thoreau cabin will be led by the Executive Director, Rob Terry. The route up to the Thoreau cabin will be of moderate difficulty, and will take place even if it’s raining. Participants must be dressed appropriately for the weather with sturdy footgear, water and snacks.
Merck Forest and Farmland Center is a non-profit educational organization located in the Taconic Mountains of southwestern Vermont. The Center’s mission is to inspire curiosity, love and responsibility for our natural and working lands. How to find us: Merck Forest and Farmland Center is located between Rupert and Dorset, at the top of the very large hill on Route 315 (Rupert Mountain Road). Please do not rely solely on your GPS: once you reach the top of the big hill on 315, turn into Merck Forest’s Driveway. If you start going downhill, you’ve missed us!
