Save Some Green by Visiting a State Park

Winnie, hikes in Mt. Philo
Take a relaxing walk in Waterbury Center State Park. The Nature Trail is mostly flat, relatively short (1/4 mi one way), and great for all ages. While walking through the old apple orchard, see if you can spot three different types of birds, a squirrel, and an animal that will soon be hibernating. It's quiet and relaxing here. The perfect place to recharge.

|Hiking in Mt. Ascutney |
A steeper, but still moderate hike can be found in Mt. Ascutney State Park. Take the Windsor Trail to Brownsville Rock lookout and enjoy the view! You'll pass waterfalls, woodland, and many animals along the way. Try to spot 4 types of mammals while hiking.
Lake Shaftsbury's Healing Springs Nature Trail is a quiet and restorative 3/4 mile long trail looping around the lake. While passing over the waters of Lake Shaftsbury, try to spot a fish, beaver, or muskrat. Also, take in the rich history of the area as you go. More information can be found here.
Happy Thanksgiving All!
