The Path of Life Garden is a crafted landscape open to the public in Windsor, Vermont. Visitors experience the story of the great circle of life while traveling through sculptures of varying sizes and materials. Inspired by a famous garden in Europe, these eighteen works of art symbolize the journey from birth to death and beyond. Since its conception in 1997, the garden has grown on its own path, providing space for recreation, relaxation, contemplation and realization; making it a great destination for families looking for fun things to do around Quechee, Woodstock, and Hanover. The path is also home to some of a 5+ mile trail network, groomed in the winter for dogsledding, snowshoeing and cross-country skiing. The garden is located in a 14-acre of field of trails, wildflowers and open spaces on the banks of the Connecticut River. It is enjoyed by people of all ages and was recently featured in Vermont Life and Pastoral Magazine.

If you are looking for a relaxing float down the river in a kayak this is not the trip for you. If you like to stop and swim, eat lunch at one stop and maybe a snack, again, this is not the trip for you....More

An 8 hour float trip is a 13 mile excursion. You asked for a full day on the river and you left the definition of "relaxing" to interpretation. I have done this trip myself and can tell you it is beautiful and relaxing with scenic...More

Well, my husband and I aren't the best kayakers in the world, but we had a great time on our trip down the CT river! The water was low (no real rapids to speak of), but there was enough current that we could drift down...More

They took good care of us - they were mostly efficient. The float down the river in a tube was relaxing and we saw two families of mergansers, and so many swallows flying around as well as lots of other birds. The garden at the...More

Very chill...canoing the beautiful and tranquil Connecticut River. Friendly and professional staff. Base is right next to Harpoon Brewery and general store that makes woodfired pizzas and the best maple cream soft serve ice cream you are likely to experience.
