A trip to Stowe isn't complete without at least one visit to the recreation path. My husband and teenage kids enjoy riding and I love to walk so I can take photographs. The path is used heavily by bike riders of all ages, but you'll find lots of walker with dogs and strollers and occasional roller bladers and jogged. On... More

This path is long enough to take a decent bike ride. I believe it is about 5 or so miles long. You can rent bikes hourly at AJ's which is right on the path. I love seeing the babbling brook that runs alongside most of the path. It's a beautiful path and mostly wooded.

Stumbled across this while out walking north of town. This is a very popular path used mostly by bikes and skaters. A little more rugged north of town than a regular paved bath but nothing serious - anyone can ride it. A great resource and fits the Burlington rep.

You don't need a bike to enjoy this path. Go as long or as little as you like. The trail is beautiful and walkable for all ages. We very much enjoyed our trip along the trial and people were very respectful whether they were on bikes or walking. Take your water bottles and sun screen in case you want to... More

We've bicycled and run on this path for several years. It can be crowded on the weekends, but that's to be expected given how great the path is to cycle on. Even though it's uphill as you head up the mountain, the grades are gentle and it is fine, even for the youngest cyclists. The bridges are a but narrow,... More

Wonderful way to experience the natural beauty of Stowe, on foot or by bike. The path leads into "downtown" Stowe, and makes a fine alternative to driving from one part of the village to the other. Also nice if visiting/dining in the village - the path entrance is very near to the visitor building, so is easy to locate.

Splendid very well maintained paved flat trail with lots of shade. Iron bridges crossing streams make for a unique and memorable ride.

This is a great way to see Vermont at its finest...mountains, rolling brooks, cows and winding paths over bridges. The full trip is about 13 miles and a generally comfortable ride, somewhere between easy and moderately challenging for non-bikers. It can get crowded in parts so bike carefully. Bring a picnic and stop along the way. Its beautiful.

Very nice, but you need to be considerate; keep to the right and keep dogs close when bicyclists are passing.
