Need to Know
There are a few major ravines in the park which the loop bisects twice - pay attention to these as they are good reference points should you get lost. Having a way to tell east from west is also helpful as the route is oriented in this direction.
The soil is generally sandy with a sparse number of roots for New England. Additionally, Robinson stays snow free for probably 9 months a year as it's low in a valley.
