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

This is an easy flat strolling hiking path through a lovely wooded preserve. There is a lot of shade which makes it nice on a hot day. We enjoyed spending about a 2 hours wandering around all the loop trails. Saw some interesting foliage, flowers and and the path is very dog friendly, too.

Weissner woods is easily accessible, just off the Mountain Road. The trails are well maintained, and have relatively good signage. The trails are well-used even in off seasons, so do not expect a wilderness experience, though the area is large enough to be quiet and peaceful. Many (most) dogs are off-leash, so it is best not to bring untrained or... More

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.
