The good news is that this is an excellent hard surface trail winding from the heart of downtown through the shops and restaurants along mountain road up into less developed countryside alongside a rocky mountain stream. The bad news is that it gets very crowded and with some moving at high speed can be a little dangerous.

What a great asset for Stowe to sport such an amazing path! Paved all the way, well marked, 17km from one-end to the other and back again. Many pretty bridges, meandering across a cute little river, several benches to rest along the way if needed. Skateboarders and in-line skaters and cyclists all sharing nicely with pedestrians. More or less flat... More

This was the first bike trip for me and my family. Everyone had a good time and the flat terrain made it easy for everyone to enjoy.

We snow shoed and cross country skied along the path. It was well maintained and beautiful. I especially liked that we could walk to the trail from our hotel. Skiing along the path was very scenic and we could go for a good distance or just a short way.

Nicely laid out for people of all abilities and plenty of scenic little places to take a break. There aware plenty of restaurants and pubs just a few steps off the path. Great for a family outing also.

We were walking on a nice March morning. Gorgeous scenery. You can download a pic of the map from the Internet. There are several parking options along the path. A good one is behind the Church on Stowe's main street.

Why the Stowe path is listed as # 4 of things to do in Burlington??? It's 30 miles from Burlington and completely different feel. Stowe path has runners, walkers, roller bladers, and wanders through woods, fields (goes past a softball field and farmer's fields.) saw a beaver swimming in the creek that the path has a bridge over.
