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

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
