Nestled against the Green Mountains, just below Rattlesnake Point is Branbury State Park.
The lake region is a most spectacular and pristine place to swim, bike and run. Novice and advanced triathletes alike marvel the beauty of our courses and enjoy the mountains, lakes and streams of Central Vermont.
The swim takes place in warm, calm, crystal clear Lake Dunmore. The bike and run courses loop around the rolling hills of the lake.
