About Birds of Vermont Museum
The trails and grounds at the Birds of Vermont Museum are open from dawn until dusk, year-round. The property spans both sides of Sherman Hollow Road. Explore, exercise, or rest in forest and meadow, beside small gardens or a flowing stream. Take a look at the notices posted in the kiosks, and make a donation if you are able to.

There are no toilet facilities nor trash bins on our trails; please take care of those things before you come. Lastly, no pets on the trails! (Trained, leashed service dogs excepted.) We recommend using the road for a dog walk.

On the side south of the Museum, across the road, trails begin near the guard rail. Wander up the Spear Trail gradually through a small maintained meadow, to our Bird Blind and pond, and further up into the forest. Can you find game trails? An old stone wall? Please be careful not to step on fragile plants in the wet slope above the pond—but enjoy their delicate beauty! This forest is rich with deciduous second-growth trees that colonized what used to be farmland.

On the north side, head down the gravel path that slopes to the stream. Be careful as Bob’s Bridge has no railings! Cross the stream and choose your path: Bob’s Trail starts along the creek then winds up and to the back of the property, where there is a drier upland forest habitat. Gale’s Trail takes you directly uphill through white pines and ferns. Overall, this side is a bigger section of the property with steep slopes and a great variety of habitats. Watch for tracks!
