Perfect place for a quiet stroll. Also great for biking and running. This path stretches for miles and meanders along a crystal clear stream. Often the route has places to stop for a beverage or even lunch and dinner. With all the great dining offerings in Stowe, this is a must to burn off some of those calories!! We definitely... More

Well maintained path, great for bikes and walkers! Watch for big families with children, they tend to go slowly.

Very pleasant to walk this! Parts are shaded and the walk is easy into town. Those on bikes and roller blades give a shout out to say "On the left!". Love the heads up and the thoughtfulness.

We stayed at Stowe Mountain Lodge . You can get on the bike path behind the Nordic barn where you rent the bikes. It was probably the best part of our whole trip. It was beautiful riding along the stream all the way to the church in Stowe and back 11 miles total.

A great snowshoe, cross country ski path in beautiful Stowe. Some wonderful restaurants/craft brew pubs located nearby for after exercise sustenance/refreshment. Well worth the visit any time of year.

Terrific bike path. Very scenic and with level grade and total out and back distance of around 10 miles challenging, but not overly taxing for some senior guys of less than perfect physical conditioning . Reasonably priced bikerentals right at beginning of path..

Nice trail that branches off to another trail for pedestrians and those with pets only (the main trail also allows bikes). If you're looking to take it easy and walk surrounded by some beautiful scenery including a nice creek, this is a good spot. Took some great pictures on our walk.

The recreation path winds through the Stowe valley with wonderful mountain views. There are many areas to stop and take in the scenery. You will pass farms and cross streams. This is one of Stowe's gems.
