The location is easy to get to if you're in Stowe. Takes about 15-20 min to get there. The trails are laid out very clearly. It's a nice walk through the woods. This is by no means a hard hike. The scenery is great beause we did it in the fall. There was a warning of bears but just be... More

Really goes to show you the pure beauty of the Vermont Wilderness. The paths aren't very long at all, so even if you do all of the paths, you could if you wanted to. Very quiet, very beautiful, and peaceful.

This is one of our favorite winter destinations in town. A perfect place for snowshoeing away from the bustling crowds.

Looking for a nice hike with nice charming rivers periodically, only 200ft elevations. Just over 2 miles. Wooded but areas with dampled sunlight. Absolutely perfect for us. Would go there over and over again.

Always visit this spot when visiting Stowe. Easy hike, about 2 miles around property. Leashed dogs are welcomed. Many small bridges over babbling brooks. Will need good footwear, hiking shoes preferred, but sneakers ok. Part of the Stowe Land Trust...look up the history of the property before going.

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 paths to follow~ nicely marked; off the beaten track so not very crowded; easy to find; very wooded with streams and small areas of water.

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.
