3.5 stars... great for trying out snowshoeing for the first time, or going out for a leisurely sunday snowshoe. easy, flat, terrain. several bridges, runs along a farm, and the main road.

Detailed Trail Descriptions from Our Guidebooks

Sandy Duling
"This short ride has it all: Stowe’s award-winning recreation path, an opportunity for fortune hunters to strike it rich, a haunted covered bridge, and a delightful descent into the village of Stowe. The village of Stowe has thrived on the tourist industry since the nineteenth century, when it was a popular summer resort. Today it’s also a center of Vermont’s ski industry, and Main Street is crowded with visitors all year long. A majority of Stowe’s visitors (and a lot of full-time residents, too) are outdoor types — skiers, hikers, paddlers, and bikers. It isn’t surprising that Stowe took a leadership role in establishing a “community created greenway” (its recreation / bike path) that has become a model for similar projects in communities nationwide."
