We were staying in near by Smugglers notch, but it was raining there. Luckily I found Cady Hill online and drove over. It was much dryer in Stowe and the trails were in pretty good shape despite recent rains. These trails are right in the...More

Although this is a beautiful in town trail suitable for beginners and advanced hikers, it has been taken over by trail bikers. It is a single lane trail, forcing walkers off the trail and bikers to slow, limiting enjoyment for both

Smack in the middle of the village of Stowe, one can spend many hours meandering through tall trees and a landscape of roots and pine needles pristine of any trash or human meddling. Young seniors, my wife and I found the walking perfect for us...More

Was in Stowe for business and brought my Mountain Bike. I googled Mountain Biking and Candy Hill was close to my hotel. The area is nicely mapped with a great view. Bear, the trail out, is a great down and out trail.

This mountain bike course right in town is newish but popular with bikers, including locals who enjoy challenging single track. Moderate climbs but challenging descents for the older biker!
