To Two Cow Lane and back
Here is a wonderful walk to take in Manchester Center— something to enjoy after your shopping and your gallery hopping, after you are done exploring along the Riverwalk at the Town Green, and after you have had a bite to eat in town. This is a short, self-guided stroll on Bonnet Street, the perfect block or two to see what adds to Manchester’s charm.
Newfane is as old as Vermont, settled eight years before the town was officially organized. The early residents were farmers, pioneers really, on rugged terrain that the Reverend Timothy Dwight IV (1752– 1817) described as “uneven” in the diaries he kept during his famous journeys through New England.
Exchange your vows amidst the natural beauty of Southern Vermont’s Green Mountains. For any season, explore the possibilities. Create and share your magic at a chic country barn or inn, on a heavenly vista, romantic lake front, or an elegant ballroom. Turn the pages and fall in love.

But what if there was a safe, open trail along the riverbanks? A pleasant path, just far enough away from traffic and shopping centers and noise—would you walk it? Did you answer yes? That’s what the folks at Manchester’s Riverwalk Committee, a nonprofit group, are counting on, and they are working hard to give all of us that opportunity…
On Foot Through Factory Point
Begin this easy walk at Adams Park at the intersection of Main Street and Center Hill Road. This three-tenths of a mile route slopes gently downhill, and the terrain is city sidewalks. End at the Factory Point Town Green on Depot Street, overlooking the spillway on the Battenkill…
Summit the Easy Way
There is only one Skyline Drive in Vermont and it begins at VT Route 7A just 5 minutes south of Manchester Village. Round-trip, the journey to the top of Equinox Mountain and back is 10.5 miles. Easy peasy, you say? Well, yes… and no…
