Rather than spend the lodge fees to use their paths, one day we used the Stowe Recreation Path and it was sufficient in giving us some experience before we hit some real trails.

This is a fantastic path that extends through wooded areas, parks, and over bridges. You can walk, cross country ski, or bike depending on weather.

Gorgeous rolling paths, fairly flat, bridges over streams, trees chomped by beavers, great view of Mt Mansfield. Easy parking and you can walk into or of of town. Lovely and good for dogs, but keep them on leash. Great to ride bikes, but I was there in the beautiful snow and it was lovely and peaceful. Benches and picnic tables... More

Every time I am visiting Stowe, one of the highlights of the trip is running on this trail! I always feel safe (even after dark) and its so beautiful. This past visit, i ran 6 miles. Parked near the Stonybrook town homes, ran to town, hiked up to sunset rock, and ran back. Perfect!

I love that Stowe offers a well paved walking/biking path that starts at the Top Notch Resort and goes all the way to town. I think it is about 10 miles round trip. The trail has some access to the river, which is good for fishing or wading and in town has access to shops & restaurants. The Quiet Path... More
