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

Awesome running or biking. Spectacular views of the village, landscape including the mountains and shops along the Mountain Road.

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.

Every walking path in the world should have swings instead of benches like this one. Beautiful lake, nice path.

beautiful walking, jogging, bike riding path. it starts just north of topnotch resort and continues all the way into town. it goes through woods, meadows, along the river, and as you get closer to town has nice views of the historic church an town. every town should have such a wonderful paved walking path.

This is not a long trail, only a little ober 5 miles long, but it is ideal for inexperienced bikers or families with younger children. There is great scenery along the way, especially toward the Western End (the side closest to the Mountain) and it ends at a very attractive covered bridge. If you bike it start behind the church...
