" Leave the roads. Take the trails." - Pythagoras
I had no idea what to expect on this hike. I wasn't familiar with the area and I hadn't done a lot of research on this trail, but I knew the elevation gain wasn't a whole lot and we were in the area so we went for it. We traveled down to Southern Vermont to check out a cabin shop we've been looking online at for a while. The lot was open and we didn't have to interact with anyone in order to look at the cabins and different out buildings. I decided that while were out we should probably sneak in a little hike, I mean why not.
This ended up being a really nice easy trail. It went all the way around Lowell Lake. The trail went through the woods and remained pretty level the entire way. It offered views of the lake and a beautiful trail through the trees. It followed the vast trail a good portion of it as well. You could tell this was a popular trail for the area, but we didn't run into any other people. We did see a couple people ice fishing out on the frozen water.
Location: Londonberry, VT

This was a sweet little hike and I bet it is beautiful in the spring, summer and fall. We are going to have to go back and check it out when everything is lush and full of color. If you're in the area definitely a great trail to get a few miles in.
