We honeymooned in Stowe and are on our 6th visit. We always take time to enjoy some part of the Rec path during our visits. We have walked, snowshoed, cross country ski, and geocached on this trail. There is one spot with a gazebo where we have picnicked, built snow men, taken family photos, and had snowball fights. I hope... More

The Rec Path is a great amenity to the town. Winding gently alongside the river and the Mountain Road, it provides access for walkers, joggers, and (slow) bikers. Many of the restaurants, hotels and other attractions along Mountain Road are accessible or close to the path, making it a reasonable way to travel in the area, from the upper Mountain... More

I rented some snowshoes and went out for about an hour. It was so gorgeous and picturesque! The trails were very nicely groomed. I would definitely go back!

The rec.path is a wonderful idea that has gotten a little out of control. Walking it could be a wonderful experience but bikers and those on roller blades have made it dangerous. You must remember to stay on the right at all times as the bikers etc move pretty fast and come around corners quickly. We have stopped walking it... More

Take a stroll into town and stop for a coffee or tea at the Black Cap Cafe. Everything is very relaxed and Stowe-like.

A wonderful experience! We rode the recreation path on bikes that we rented. We started in town and rode out and back, a 11 mile bike ride total. Beautiful and scenic! It was fall and the colors were exquisite!

great rec path starts in the charming village and winds its way through woods and along pretty streams. Great place for a quiet walk, family bike ride, or for Fido to stretch his legs!

Loved the length, 5.3 miles. So nice to have this in the middle of town. Makes for a good safe walk. My husband got to enjoy some roller blading as well.

The 'rec' path is a good way to get a view of Stowe and the river close up. It runs 5+ miles so it is great for people at all abilities. There is one street crossing but otherwise there is no need to worry about kids on the streets. There is also a 'quiet' path off of the lower section... More
