The Porter-Phelps-Huntington Museum is the designated Way-Station for the National Connecticut River Scenic Byway. The Museum hosts a panel exhibit on the natural history of the Valley, the Museum’s history, and sites along the by-way for travelers. A newly created trail system begins at the Museum and traverses the farm fields along the river and continues across River Drive through a forested area along a ridge, the old buggy path, to the top of Mount Warner where the family grazed their cattle in the 18th century and in the late 19th century went nutting on Sunday outings.
