The path was overgrown, and it was clear that for years now it had remained all but untrodden
All was wild and solitary, and one might have declared it a scene untrodden

Around us were solitudes of snow, arcades picked out in pearl and silver, long avenues of untrodden
marble whence sprang the cathedral columns of the firs.
Spite of this frigid winter night in the boisterous Atlantic, spite of my wet feet and wetter jacket, there was yet, it then seemed to me, many a pleasant haven in store; and meads and glades so eternally vernal, that the grass shot up by the spring, untrodden
, unwilted, remains at midsummer.
Descending into the grotto, he lifted the stone, filled his pockets with gems, put the box together as well and securely as he could, sprinkled fresh sand over the spot from which it had been taken, and then carefully trod down the earth to give it everywhere a uniform appearance; then, quitting the grotto, he replaced the stone, heaping on it broken masses of rocks and rough fragments of crumbling granite, filling the interstices with earth, into which he deftly inserted rapidly growing plants, such as the wild myrtle and flowering thorn, then carefully watering these new plantations, he scrupulously effaced every trace of footsteps, leaving the approach to the cavern as savage-looking and untrodden

The wounded deer dragging its fainting limbs to some untrodden
brake, there to gaze upon the arrow which had pierced it, and to die, was but a type of me.
At first, he could give no encourage- ment; with unfeigned diffidence, he expressed his conviction that he was not adequate to the perform- ance of so great a task; the path marked out was wholly an untrodden

A grand and almost untrodden

I'll take you travelling with me, show you the world, new worlds, unnamed rivers, untrodden
But they, refusing to comply, lest they should incur the anger of the mob, turned them into the streets, where they wandered up and down hardly remembering the ways untrodden
