Stone Paths are decorative blocks used mainly outside. They were added in the Garden Update (along side Hedges , Bird Bath and White Fences ). They are a more aesthetically pleasing pathway than gravel.
The Stone Paths takes the textures from smooth stone to allow for texture pack support. When the Stone Path is placed, it is rotated, so each time it will look differently than the previous one placed, as seen in the picture to the right.
The Stone Path can be made using the image below as a guide. It requires 2 cobblestone and gives you 8 stone paths.
