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.

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).
