Hit the recreation path on our last day in Stowe for a long weekend. You may wonder, how can a freaking bike/walking path be the #1 rated activity in Stowe? In a word: beauty. It's a tranquil place to be, and clearly enjoyed by locals and visitors alike. To escape some of the bike traffic, we took the unpaved "quiet... More

Great easy, scenic, flat bike ride or walk. Follows the river and crosses back and forth several times. Passes by restaurants so convenient for breaks. Great for kids of all ages.

We got on our bikes by Topnotch and cruised down to the centre of Stowe. This was a beautiful sunny day and we even saw a chipmunk on the way down. It's easy going both ways and we surprised ourselves how quickly it can be done. Well worth it and highly recommended.

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.
