The Stowe bike trail is a pleasant 5 mile trek that winds up along the Mountain Road. Tired of riding or walking? Stop at one of the great restaurants along the way. There is a great small river along the way if you want a little wading.

We generally start off in the middle - it's close to where our home is located - and then generally walk North towards the mountain. I love the Stowe Path in the summer - such cute swimming holes. I love it in the winter - although people do track it up - you have to catch a fresh snowfall for... More

This Bike trail is an incredible bike path for the entire family. My five-year-old son just loved the bridges, the twists and turns. Many cool sights along the way too. We will always come back to Stowe, especially for this bike path.

So beautiful and easy to navigate, even with three crazy kids! The scenery is truly spectacular. We parked at Picasso and went right, away from town behind the commerce, which avoided all the car crossings. That was key, as we felt better about the kids safety.

Wow! You cannot miss this. Rent a bike and ride this path or just walk it. It is a beautiful paved path, crossing the road a couple of times but mainly winding through the woods with frequent little bridges crossing the river running alongside the path. This is an almost level ride that can be done by anyone. Outstanding!

Two parents and two twenty-somethings got up bright and early to ride bikes on the Stowe Recreational Path two mornings in a row. At 7:00 am the path has very few people, and the Vermont landscape looks exceptionally pretty. We chose to park at the end of the path that starts at the church in town. We found that the... More

Excellent scenic walking/biking path which follows a brook from just off Mt Mansfield to down town Stowe. Inspirational views going through the woods with bridges, horses grazing in the fields, and numerous stops to view the brook as it travels. Good workout with many picture opportunities.

This is a beautifully maintained path through Stowe. You can go short or longer distances, and there's tons to see. Lots of benches if you need a break. And everyone on the path seems cheerful.

The Stowe Rec Path is an amazing resource for locals and visitors alike! The 5 1/2 mile path twists and turns past gorgeous vistas, bubbling streams, wild flowers and wooded areas. There are many areas along the path for parking and picnics. Each mile or so is a completely different experience. It's equally fun to walk or cycle! It's a... More
