Woods Island became Vermont's forty-fifth state park in 1985. 125-acres, this park has a unique habitat for a rich variety of plant life including many species rare or threatened in Vermont. A portion of the island was once farmed; traces of drainage ditches remain today. Still visible is also the farm house foundation and weathered remains of old farm machinery. A later attempt by a private developer saw the beginnings of an airstrip constructed down the center of the island; the earth berms you climb over on the cross-island trail are the runway edges.
