Easy Trails Everywhere

Easy Trails Everywhere

Vermont is known for the Long Trail and the Green Mountains, but for people who don't have time, or have young kids that can't go on difficult trails, there are a slew of local, flat, easily walkable trails for all ages and types of people.

Dorset Park in South Burlington has such a trail where my sister and cousin recently took her two young children during an afternoon out. Swift Street, just down the way from Dorset Park, has a gravel pull-off along the road that some people don't realize actually has a simple, easily accessible trail.

Shelburne Pond located just minutes from Burlington has a walking trail which skirts the water's edge and lightly moves up and down a lightly wooded area. If you don't want to walk, you can bring your kayak, fishing pole, camera, or all three instead.

Colchester Pond offers a similar setting, albeit a slightly more difficult walk, that goes around the entire pond. But, you don't have to walk the whole way because the majority of the area when you arrive is wide open field, flat land, and clear views of the pond.

Just off Harbor Road in South Burlington you can find a local natural trail that goes into the woods around a small marsh, home to different woodpecker, shore birds, and other critters. But, there's also a paved path just down the road from that trail for runners, dog-walkers, and anybody else.

You don't need a backpack and tent to visit Vermont trails -- keep an eye out.
