The Sports center where I rented the snow shoes recommended these Woods for someone who was snow shoeing for the first time. I went alone and there was only one other truck parked in the lot. I was a little worried about being in the...More

After an eleven hour flight delay from Texas to Vermont recently, we were grateful to arrive safely and with all bags accounted for. Our drive to Stowe from Burlington was peaceful and easy, and our room at Stowehof Inn was waiting for us. Next morning,...More

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...More

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...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...More

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...More
