We parked at Luce Hill Road car park (free) and walked northwards up the valley along the winding gently sloping/mostly flat tarmac pathway to Brook road at the far end of the trail. Total time 2 hours return. Lots of benches on the way if...More

We traveled to many bike paths but this one is my absolute favorite. It is not an old rail way so the path is not poker straight. It was designed to take advantage of nature. There are 10 bridges along the path as you meander...More

Years ago it was more peaceful, but with popularity comes congestion. The path really ought to be widened to accommodate the mix of bikes, skaters, unpredictable children and skiers in training all moving at different rates. It's still enjoyable though, especially to the north away...More

Went here today and it was great. Busy but great views of the fall colors. Plenty of parking at different lots. I will go here again when not busy.

As part of a much longer and more strenuous ride, the bike path was a pleasant break with nice scenes and very little elevation gain.

Heavily wooded path along farm fields and a gurgling creek. Suitable for bikes or hikers and definitely family friendly. Gorgeous in the fall! I popped on the trail at Piecasso Pizza then finished my hike with a fabulous pizza!

We love walking, especially when there are so many things to see and experience as on the Stowe Recreation Path. There are parts where one might believe they’re far away from ‘civilization’ (especially if little or no car traffic nearby) and other areas that suggest...More
