General Description:

The 400-acre Woodford State Park is located in the southern Green Mountain town of Woodford. This high elevation (2400 feet) property is surrounded by lands of Green Mountain National Forest including the Aiken Wilderness.

The 2.7 mile Woodford Trail circles the park and reservoir while the shorter Atwood Trail (0.5 miles) runs along a portion of the shoreline.
