Vermont isn't all sugar maples! With over 50 species native to Vermont, this driving tour will point out some of the locals' favorites as well as species that are invasive in Vermont. This tour is spread out through Grandma Spaulding's walking trail in Fair Haven, Vermont. Be sure to knock on her door and let her know you're there first!
This location is home to numerous wildlife species, such as Barred Owls (Strix varia) and White-tailed Deer (Odocoileus virginianus). The property is over 30 acres, and home to numerous tree species that you can observe during your peaceful walk. As you walk the paths formed by the Spaulding family for bird watching and hunting, you will hear leaves blowing in the wind, the drilling of woodpeckers, and the calls of birds. Be sure to pack a pair of boots and wear long pants as some parts of the walk may take you through higher vegetation and mud. Remember to ALWAYS WEAR ORANGE if traveling through during a hunting season! Bring water and a few snacks as you may find yourself wanting to stay the whole afternoon exploring, but remember to leave no trace!
Enjoy your experience and the beautiful scenary this trail will bring.
