Destination: Love! The Most Romantic Spots in Vermont State Parks

Snow is in the air and, during this second week in February, so is love! There are many ways to show your beloved that you care: taking a brisk stroll beneath a winter moon, gliding through some fresh powder side-by-side, or scraping ice and snow off their car. For many lovers of the outdoors, Vermont State Parks are a romantic destination. Parks become the site of several marriage proposals and lots of weddings every year.

In honor of Valentine’s Day, here are our picks for the Most Romantic Locations in Vermont State Parks:

One of the most popular hiking destinations in the state, Mt. Philo State Park is also a wonderful place to take a date! A quick hike to the top really delivers with beautiful views of the Lake Champlain Valley and Adirondack Mountains. Regardless of the season, Mt. Philo really captures all of the beauty and romance of the state.

Little River State Park
Take a romantic trip to Little River State Park for camping, hiking, swimming, and visits to nearby Waterbury and Stowe. The only thing more exhilarating than falling in love? Being towed up and over snowy trails by a team of Siberian Huskies.
Climb the historic rock path to the Owl’s Head summit for views of Kettle Pond, Lake Groton, and the Green Mountains. You can really feel the love as you gaze out from this iconic Vermont vista.

Allis State Park Fire Tower
Do you feel like your love keeps on lifting you higher and higher? Explore that feeling at the Allis State Park fire tower. From the top you can take in a panoramic view of the surrounding scenery that includes Killington, Mt. Mansfield, Mt. Abraham, and New Hampshire’s White Mountains. This charming and peaceful park is perfect for a quiet outing with the one you love.
