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. Stowe bike... More

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

This path meanders through Stowe and the surrounding countryside and is a easy and delightful place to take a sort or long bike ride. It is paved, has minimal road crossings and includes a number of wonderful bridges over a creek that winds it way through the woods and hills surrounding Mt Mansfield. We brought our own bikes but I... 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.

The sights and sounds along the rec path in Stowe provide more than just a great bike ride, it's an unparalleled experience and not to be missed.

This is a great path that winds between houses, stores and the town- not alongside side the road. Its well maintain and smartly designed. The traffic is Stowe is terrible, so I should have accessed the path from outside the town and walked in. I didn't, so I'm annoyed, and wanted to share my advice with anyone reading this.
