16 Great Variations of The Path Pattern for Animal Crossing: New Horizons (Brick, Stone, Sand, Water)

Unless you’ve been living under a giant rock, it’s highly likely you’ve heard about the famous dirt pathway custom pattern that’s been taking the Animal Crossing: New Horizons community by storm lately.

Often known as simply “The Path” by many Animal Crossing fans at this point, this custom pattern popularized the concept of rough and windy natural looking edges on paths. In the initial design, the path resembled a dirt pathway, but the sky is the limit on this concept!

In case you missed it before though, you can find the original dirt path version created by Denim2 here in our article from last week. Since The Path design blew up a week ago, there’s been an amazing series of variations and spin-offs created by Animal Crossing: New Horizons pattern designers inspired by the original.

These impressive new spin-offs of The Path range from simple brick, wood, stone, and sand designs to elaborate new creations featuring flowers, water, and clouds! As always, it’s incredible how much creativity the Animal Crossing community can muster up.

In this article, we’ll be rounding up 16 of the most amazing variations we’ve seen so far of The Path pattern for you to use in your Animal Crossing: New Horizons island — enjoy them all below with screenshots, design codes, and designer credits!
