Please Note: The McKnight Trail and a portion of the Lingelbach Trail are currently closed due to the construction of the Forest Canopy Walk, which will be completed in the Fall of 2019.

There’s plenty of wildlife to see while exploring more than one mile of nature trails that wind through the Nature Center’s rich floodplain forest. The McKnight Trail* has a hard-packed surface accessible for wheelchairs and strollers. The Laughlin Trail and Lingelbach Trail guide visitors along the Ottauquechee River, with views of Dewey’s Pond. Our trails also connect to those at Quechee State Forest, so you can combine your walk at VINS with a hike to Quechee Gorge!

*The McKnight trail conforms to ABA standards and is accessible for people using wheelchairs and strollers. Closed until Fall 2019.
