This lovely paved path winding through forest and fields alongside a stony brook is one of the reasons we come to Stowe. It can get busy during summer, but even then it is a treat to walk or bike. We try to book accommodation that is either directly on the path or very close at hand. We usually begin and... More

The trail winds through woods and farm lands with a dozens of bridges over the scenic river and great views of the mountains. The pavement is first rate even for roller blading.

Only 5.5 miles, it is a lovely winding path through woods and valley. It ends in the center of town so you can continue exploring

My husband and I rented bicycles and spent a 1/2 day riding along this well paved and beautifully constructed recreation path. There are many lovely parks and attractions along the way. The path offers smooth rolling inclines, multiple bridges across the river and plenty of shade for hot days. We rode the path on a Sunday and were able to... More

Awesome Bike Trail ... we took a bike for free from our hotel and we made a trip for an hour along a the route that passes next to the river where s along the way there are a beautiful places to stop and rest. Most of the route is plain and not requires a great effort.

The path wends its way from the church parking lot to a covered bridge, a distance of a little over 6 miles. You will pass pastures and corn fields, restaurants and woods. You will cross over wooden plank bridges and follow the river's path.
