Montpelier is All Around Adventure. 

Montpelier is truly a four-season destination with outdoor activities, adventure, and sports for all. Nestled in a valley at the confluence of two rivers and sheltered by surrounding hillsides, Montpelier offers adventure year round. 

Hubbard Park, the city’s premier forested park, offers great views and is a short walk from the State House. A bike path follows the Winooski River. The North Branch River Park offers almost 200 acres of gentle trails and access to miles of challenging cross-country skiing or walking. Whether your passion is biking, kayaking, skiing, snowshoeing, skateboarding, fishing, swimming or more—in all seasons you will find plenty of ways to enjoy the great outdoors!
