We enjoyed walking this idyllic and gentle hike for 1 1/2 hours on a very hot and humid day. Lots of pine needles on the forest floor made it seem like a fairy forest. We also saw an old sugar shack which is used in the winter for skiers to stop by for a hot beverage.

This is such a gift for the town of Stowe. The woods are so quiet and thick, you can imagine what it was like in colonial times. Well-maintained trail that can be hard to find at times. It's not too difficult to pick it up again. Lovely place to walk and think.

Very nicely marked and well maintained trails. All the mucky areas were bridged. The Sugar Shack was nice and surprisingly someone had put the flag up on the mailbox to send some mail, I think they may wait a long time for the mailman to come pick it up. Keep your eyes open for the Gnome Village. The longest loop... More

Last year, we XC skied here, and barely survived to tell the tale. It is clearly a hiker/walker kind of place. So this year, we broke in our snowshoes. Wonderful! People really do clean up after their dogs. The trails are well marked. You can tell if you are going to stray to the Catamount Trail, or how to stay... More

A lovely place for a walk that is graced with friendly walkers. Not hard or strenuous, just calm and rolling. Loved the Sugar Shack. Really loved the Gnome Tree!!!On top of that, I lost my sunglasses in the park and did not notice until I left and had been gone for an hour. We hurried back to retrace our steps... More

If you like a walk through the woods, this is for you! The "hike" is not really a hike but just a nice walk through the woods. It is not very difficult. There are multiple loops of trails so that you can choose different lengths of walks. The area is beautiful. Nice way to spend an hour or so.

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.
