Vermont Walking Tours Part 2 of "The Trail"

Part one of “The Trail” from Vermont Inn to Inn Walking Tours took us through the quintessential village of Chester Vermont.  Starting at Inn Victoria, Romantic Vermont Bed and Breakfast to the Old Town Farm Inn, home of the best Japanese food in Vermont.  A 9.1 mile walk through the Chester Village green, down the streets of New England charm, through the hills and across forests, this walk is a perfect start for anyone wanting to enjoy the best Vermont has to offer.

Part two of “The Trail” takes us From Old Town Farm Inn through the lake country where lakes and water falls are plentiful.  Starting at the head of Lake Ninevah where moose can often be spotted cooling themselves in the waters, we will walk a few miles along gravel country roads and babbling brooks.  You will definitely want your binoculars for this trek because the odds of seeing waterfowl, moose or other wildlife, is good.  At the very least, the scenery is spectacular Vermont at its best.
Linger awhile at the Old Revolutionary War grave site before moving on to several more lakes and streams, along quiet lake shores of unmatched views.  If the air is still, you will want to take pictures of the hills reflecting into the water…and then break the stillness with a dip into the cool, fresh, clean waters!
A part of this trek travels through an encampment by soldiers of the Revolutionary War in 1777 as they traveled from Fort Number 4, (Charlestown NH) to the Battle of Ticonderoga, New York. In the mid 1800's gold was discovered in this area.  At today’s gold prices, it may be worth taking your gold pan!

Before the day is done you will have arrived at Combes Family Inn Bed and Breakfast, a beautiful farm setting just seconds from the beautiful lake shores of Southern Vermont.
