Mysteriously beautiful paths can be made of cobblestone, brick, dirt, flowers, or just about anything. What makes a path uniquely special has nothing to do with its makeup or location, instead it’s a mixture of ingredients that create the most magical pathways you can walk.
When you find the path of your dreams, it might lead to something magnificent, or something rather frightening as well. A pretty pathway can inspire thought provoking ideas, or simply let your mind rest and relax, away from the nonstop beeping computers and cell phones.
What is your favorite path to walk along? Perhaps you have your own splendid pathway located in your backyard. For others, finding a dreamy path might take more effort, say for instance a 10 mile hike up steep terrain.
Here are 28 photographs of the most magical paths from all around the world, no strenuous exercise necessary.
