Paths can be used to give your island in Animal Crossing New Horizons a bit more of a town/village feel. There are a few different types of paths that you can build, though you won't get the option until you're close to the end of the main game. To help you keep your eyes on the prize, we've detailed how to unlock paths and how to build them in this guide.

How to Build Paths
To build paths in Animal Crossing New Horizons you'll need to have unlocked the Island Designer App. You can find more info on doing so here. Once you have it, you can build paths using the app. Just open it and select the 'build paths' option. Choose your type and then lay them down using the 'A' button.
Types of Path
There are nine different path types in Animal Crossing New Horizons. So far, we've managed to unlock the following:
- Grass path
- Dirt path
- Stone path
- Brick path
- Sand path
Once you've placed paths down, you can smooth off their edges by pressing 'A' again. This will give corners a more rounded appearance.
