Had a good time biking on the path. Quiet and serene. Picnic areas are available. Bike rentals located close to the path and reasonable rates.

The recreation path in Stowe is a wonderful place for a walk, bike ride or as we did take a run. The scenery is gorgeous. It winds through the woods over little bridges with art installations along the way. Definitely check it out.

We took a walk through the recreation path in the early morning and it was wonderful. There was "art work" lining the path in different areas, places to stop and take pictures, grab a snack and enjoy the scenery. Definitely worth a stroll.

Nice activity for an afternoon in Stowe. Rented bikes at AJs and it worked out great. A few restaurants along the way if you need to stop for a drink or snack. We enjoyed iced tea on the patio at Crops

One of Stowe's greatest pleasures is utilizing the beautiful Recreation Path that runs through the valley of Stowe. It's beautiful, nice and flat and a great way to exercise...

The scenery was beautiful. Lots of bridges to cross over and the path could have been wider. I'm use to a wide two lane bike path. Very busy with walkers and families making it at times frustrating for bike riding.

A great path for a casual stroll, an active run.. a bike ride for the family! There are great places to stop for a bite along the way anywhere along this path.

This was a nice path. Not totally flat so it wasn't boring. Plus it went over bridges. It is a little narrow in places especially over the bridges. I would wait to make sure no one was coming the other way and had to go off a little for a jogger who was taking up the whole path with herself... More
