While at the cabin, be sure to take the Robert Frost Trail which has some of Frost's poetry mounted along the way.
This half hour walk will remind you of his more famous works, as well as acquaint you with his lesser known pieces.
This trail is just by the cabin, so Frost was certainly inspired by the very same path you can wander through.
According to the sign, it was at a divide in the trail at that point that Frost wrote the famous "The road less travelled."
He spent summer and fall in this cabin at his farm in Ripton.
On May 23, 1968, The Frost Farm (also known at the Homer Noble Farm) was listed on the National Register of Historic Places. On the same day the National Park Service designated this compound a National Historic Landmark.
