“good hike”

Lowell Lake State Park
Attraction details
Reviewed October 24, 2013

the lake is beautiful, and the main trail is a good hike! not too steep, good variation of landscape, and the property is lovely. some parts of it seem run down (there is a row of cabins that are falling apart...they were actually pretty cool to poke around!) but the trails are nicely maintained.

Thank Mary J

Loved the solitude and the fall colors. The Revolutionary era cemetery was also a delight to discovery.

We were looking for a scenic spot, and saw a sign for Lowell Lake State Park. There is a small parking area, and a path to follow. The first spot we came to had picnic tables right near the lake. We walked further, right along the lake, and saw trees felled by beavers, an old causeway, a cabin across the lake, and some absolutely beautiful scenery. The lake is quite large, and you can canoe or kayak on it. Fishing is allowed, and they are investigating what type of fish to stock it with. No camping is allowed, but they recently added land to the area and are hoping to improve the trails soon. There is an old cemetary on the grounds, and the oldest gravestone my husband saw was from 1790, a gentleman who served in the Revolutionary War. It is a definite must to stop and enjoy the beauty of Lowell Lake.

Its a hidden VT state park that once was a resort with a hotel (now gone) and also a private camp for children (also gone). What's left is a great place to paddle. The north and south ends have large bogs festooned with pitcher plants. I saw a huge snapping turtle, easily a record breaking size. I even spooked a bald eagle as I rounded a bend. Two islands where you can stop for lunch or enjoy the wildflowers which abound in the spring. No power boats so do enjoy the calm waters. Don't forget your VT fishing license.
