4 mile walk on the day after Thanksgiving 2016

Enjoyable walk. Slush on the bridges was hazardous to some, e.g. me. I don't know if the path is regularly plowed in the winter. Path is too narrow for adult bicyclers.

We've both biked and walked on this path in different seasons. In the winter it's a great cross country ski path as well. It meanders along a small stream and next to farm country. Very charming and good for people of all ages.

We rented bicycles at the north end of the path and rode the entire route back to the church. It was a wonderful weather day and we enjoyed the scenery along the route. We hadn't ridden bicycles in years so it was fun to actually get to do so. The path is well maintained although closer to the south end... More

A great walk that goes over the river by interconnected bridges. You could stop for lunch along the way. It's a beautiful walk or bike ride.

I always look forward to doing a long run on the path which is safe, picturesque, well maintained, friendly and peaceful. 5 out and a little over 5 back in order to take pictures!!!!! 10 plus miles without even a car to dodge! Ahhhhhhhhh...so wonderful !

This is the best bike path I've ever been on. Paved, not too challenging, great scenery. A must if you're in the area.

Such a beautiful place for a walk. There are streams, leaves, trees, and places to stop and take photos. A fun place to see when in Stowe, but only in warmer weather.

After biking the hills of Vermont this bike path was very welcomed. It has beautiful scenery and is an easy bike ride. There are many bridges that need to be crossed and they really can't take 2 bikes in opposite directions so that is something to be careful of. Also the path is used by lots of people on walks...

Walked from Stoweflake Mountain Resort into Stowe using this path. Walk is flat and well marked. Lovely way to spend an hour or so.

On a road trip of New England, we stopped off in the picturesque Stowe for roughly an hour. Not being adequately prepared for a full day of activity/hiking/biking, we decided to rent a tandem bike for one hour from 'AJs' for only $14. This was cheaper than renting two separate bikes but also way more fun and less effort for... More
