The narrator admits that he will recount the story of the fork in the path with a certain wistful nostalgia, perhaps in wondering where life would have taken him had he made other choices (taken other paths).

The path in the woods is a universal symbol for the path of life, and the fork of course is the moment of decision; the path taken, the ultimate choice made.
