Last year, we XC skied here, and barely survived to tell the tale. It is clearly a hiker/walker kind of place. So this year, we broke in our snowshoes. Wonderful! People really do clean up after their dogs. The trails are well marked. You can tell if you are going to stray to the Catamount Trail, or how to stay... More

A lovely place for a walk that is graced with friendly walkers. Not hard or strenuous, just calm and rolling. Loved the Sugar Shack. Really loved the Gnome Tree!!!On top of that, I lost my sunglasses in the park and did not notice until I left and had been gone for an hour. We hurried back to retrace our steps... More

If you like a walk through the woods, this is for you! The "hike" is not really a hike but just a nice walk through the woods. It is not very difficult. There are multiple loops of trails so that you can choose different lengths of walks. The area is beautiful. Nice way to spend an hour or so.

Weissner Woods is nice walk through a forest. It is relatively flat. It's big drawback is that it connects o the 250mile plus Catamont Winter trail. The marking is not good and it is very easy to get seriously lost. Take your cell phone. If you have a signal it can be a great help.

Very low key easy hike. Brought 4 boys ages 8-12 and it was perfect. Took us about an hour to hike all the paths. Beautiful views of meadows and mountains. I would recommend.

boring hike with no views. hard to find the entrance. Lots of private driveway signs which made finding entrance a challenge.

Very picturesque and easy hike. Mostly level and takes about an hour to complete the longest path. A walk for the easy going, older group as well as families with kids. serious walkers will not find it challenging but its beauty make it attractive to all.

I have hiked these trails and they are very enjoyable, meandering and hilly enough to be challenging. We used to take our dogs and friends for a good one hour hike. There is plenty of shade to keep you cool on some of the warmest days. Truly a gift to Stowe.

During my trip to Stowe, I wanted to take some time and explore some quieter paths for relaxing and clearing the mind. On another review, I saw Wiessner Woods and decided to give it a try. A few years back there was some black bear sightings. I wasn't interested in meeting a mother bear or her cubs on my visit... More

We have been to Stowe many times but never come here because it seemed too boring what with all the mountain hiking options that abound. However, yesterday after biking and horseback riding we were looking for a gentle amble and so decided to finally go here. What a lovely spot! True, no gorgeous mountain vistas, but beauty comes in more... More
