Shelburne Farms is a 1400 acre working farm, a National Historic Landmark with stunning waterfront views. It is 7 miles south of Burlington. For runners, there are more than 10 miles of walking trails that are open year-round, weather permitting. We’ve put together a loop that starts from the Welcome Center and tours the major features at the farm. From there you’ll pass the Farm Barn, the hub of Shelburne Farms’ education programs and nonprofit administration. The trail wraps around Whimsy Meadow and up Windmill Hill. As you loop around you’ll pass the shoreline, with great views of the mountains. On your way back you’ll go by the Market Garden, a 7-acre mixed vegetable garden that produces many organic vegetables highlighted at their restaurant at The Inn at Shelburne Farms.Info on Shelburne Farms
