Disc Golf

Lake St. Catherine State Park hosts an 18-hole disc golf course that is open seasonally. The course wanders through the open fields and trees and takes approximately 1-2 hours depending on ability. Visit the Vermont State Parks website for details.


The Poultney area hosts over 110 geocache sites within 10 miles . Geocaching is a wonderful way to explore an area and here you’ll find thoughtfully prepared themed caches such as, ‘slate, slate and more slate’, ‘revival’, and the ‘Coy Hill caches’ (just to name a few). Visit to register and get started.

Bird Watching

Opportunities abound in Poultney for birders! One of the best places to start are the weekly bird and wildflower hikes hosted seasonally by Slate Valley Trails and the Rutland County Audubon Society. Outings average 3-miles of slow-paced hikes on variable terrain. Visit the Rutland County Audubon Society to learn more about these guided walks or explore the trails on your own.
