Whether you're walking, running, or biking this is a nice place to get in a little exercise without having to worry about traffic. We added it on to the end of a 22 mike bike ride, and it was a great way to add some extra miles, take in the views, while not having to deal with automobile traffic. Also,... More

This was by far the most enjoyable bike paths we have used. It is so well maintained and designed. We really enjoyed the bridges that crisscrossed over the ever present river, the flatness of the trail, and access to businesses, river even a corn maze.

My husband and I rented a bike to do the path. It is completely paved and runs from Top Notch resort to downtown. It follows a stream over a few pedestrian bridges and past a corn maze and a few parks. Some of the bridges are a little narrow and the turns after the bridges can be a tight turn... More

We probably walked half of the path but could've kept going easily, the trails are well kept, paved for ease of walking/biking and the views are beautiful! It's a great way to get some moderate exercise while enjoying the beauty of Stowe! The paths are great for bikes too and that was more common than walking while we were there.... More

Used this as a safe place for walking during vacation and completely enjoyed it. Lots of friendly people and lovely scenery. Corn fields, woods, bridges, river. Watch out for the bikes, though, as many do not announce that they are behind and about to pass.

We had an absolute blast on the Rec path. We packed lunch and toted the kids in a bike trailer. The views were beautiful, the parking behind the church was easily accessible and had open spots, it was not crowded and we would absolutely visit again. There were many places to stop and for a break or lunch, even a... More

What a lovely thing this town has created. This recreation path is frequented by cyclists and walkers. You can walk or bike for miles (I think I read 11 in all) or just take the size stroll you desire. Although it starts right in town and emerges by the occasional pub or other place to stop for refreshment, most of... More

We took a whole day to enjoy this short path, and it was amongst the best days of our vacation. The views are great and there are many nooks to stop and admire the nature, take a break, read on a bench, or jump into the water. Although busy, the path did not seem crowded. Everyone was friendly. There are... More

We took a beautiful walk along the trail, which was flat and extremely scenic. There are also bike rental opportunities along the way. If you are looking for a varied length scenic walk, and don't want something strenuous, this is your walk. The max length is about 10 miles round trip, but you can break it down into many much...

Nothing too difficult here, a pleasant bike ride along the river and across the bridges. Shaded and an easy walk/ride. Great thing is that you can stop off and take a dip in the river if you get too hot!
