MONTPELIER will host its first “Big Woods Walk” of the new year on Sunday, January 22 at 2pm (fee $5 per person). Join Montpelier Horticulturist Sandy Mudrinich for a wonderful hike through Montpelier’s Landmark Forest—a rare hardwood old growth forest consisting of towering poplars, stately oaks, and sprawling beeches. This tour begins at the David M. Rubenstein Visitor Center. The trail is a gentle 1-mile loop. Dogs on leashes are welcome!
