Barre Town, Vermont

We spent some time exploring the Websterville and Graniteville areas of Barre Town this weekend. On Saturday we hiked some of the Millstone Trails in Barre Town Forest. It was a really nice hike, but I wish we had printed out a map before setting out. We parked at the Brook Street access, which had a disk golf course along the trail. We don't disk golf, but figured it may be a point of interest to others who may.

As we were driving out to the Barre Town Forest, I noticed a bike path running alongside the road, so we checked it out on Sunday. It was 1.4 miles one way. We parked at the Barre Town school and walked to the end of the path and back. Here are some photos of our walk:
