that lead to a private area of xc trails. Snow was deep and trails were groomed. Cost was 0! Thanks Stowe.

We always make sure to snowshoe in Wiessner Woods--it's tranquil and you can be out there for hours and not meet a soul. Beautiful scenery--a real gem in Stowe when you want a break from the apres ski crowd. Not to be missed.It's special.

Easy to reach, and simple to hike (no special shoes, water, gear). This wonderful reserve affords vacationers a peaceful walk in the woods. If you don't prefer the hectic Stowe all-purpose bike path - you will likely enjoy this, as we did.

We enjoyed a couple of short and easy hikes along the Sugar House Trail and the Meadow Trail, both easy 30-minute loops. Though it is past peak foliage there were still beautiful yellow and copper beech colors and the smell of balsam everywhere. Despite Columbus Day weekend crowds in the town, there were hardly any hikers here. Wait until you... More

This is a great spot to bring dogs, snow-shoe, run around and enjoy the great outdoors. We love bringing our pup her to run around in bother winter and summer. She meets other dogs, and enjoys finding a treat in the woods (left by another dog owner).

this is a gentle walk through a very pretty stretch of woods. The trails are easy and gentle, well maintained. It has one place where you can get a good view of the meadow and the mountains. If you have an hour to kill, this is a great place to visit.
