An easy 1 mile each way hike that I could do with my toddler on my back. Beautiful views of the lake and Adirondacks. The only complaint is that it was extremely crowded, but we were expecting that since we went on a beautiful fall Sunday so no big deal.

Very easy walking trail. We read all the poems. Our first poem reading hike. My dog enjoyed it too. Only saw 2 other people on the trail.

This trail has areas that are too steep to be called easy for someone with exercised induced asthma. Had to abandon our attempt. Review is for label, not for the area.

Trail was in great shape and the view was fabulous. A real treat for an after-work hike.

Nice hike. Decided to take devil's chair trail after the summit. It was very narrow with lots of interesting crevices. Loved it.

beautiful trail. easy 5 min walk to the falls with 6 years old. you have to hike a bit further to see the beautiful view it's worth it!

Nice quiet hike — our dogs loved the lake!

This was a fun, quick hike that had a “kick” to it. I will definitely return to hike all the way up.

Beautiful! A little bit shorter than I had hoped. Great view from below and above!

If you've got friends or family visiting you in Vermont, Mount Philo is the perfect way to spend a few hours. A very easy mile each way gets you some great views of Lake Champlain and the surrounding areas. Very crowded in the summer, try to hike this one around 5 or 6 pm to catch the setting sun over Lake Champlain.

This was a pretty hike but not what I would call easy. There were some pretty steep sections that left my family winded. The forest was lovely but not a good view of the waterfall and the highway detracts from the window view.

Nice family friendly hike. You can choose to stick to path or follow the paved road both up and down. Offers some beautiful views of Lake Champlain.

enjoyed hiking here. we met so many people from different age groups. very nice view at the top and relaxing picnic spots. restroom area is also well maintained. in short worth the hike. and perfect for beginners!

A pleasant trail with wild berries and a brook. For a more “moderate” experience, be sure to climb the hill to the upper trails (see my photos of the “Afternoon Delight” and “Sundown” trails up there).

Perfect hike for beginners. Gives a challenge at the beginning, great view at the top and easy paved road on the way down. I would have preferred a wooded path the entire way but this hike was enjoyable. We passed many of all ages, 3 years to 70s. Some of the younger kids were complaining but our 8 year olds did great. The path was hard packed and steps were available in some areas.

Really enjoyed this trail. Mostly really easy, great for families and dogs.

Very nice day hike — varied views along the way, peaceful place.

Nice waterfall . Easy to get to!

A nice nature walk with the added nicety of reading some of Frost's greatest poems in a pretty setting.

great views and an easy hike. picnic area at the top.

I rated this as a decent outing because the falls are nice and refreshing. This is NOT a 2.9 mike hike. It is a little under a half mile to the falls.

Wonderful nature walk with added bonus of Robert Frost poems. Take as much time as you need to read the poems and reflect on them. Benches available by some poems. Well marked and maintained trail. Would do this again.

NOT 2.9 miles. More like a 5 minute stroll from the parking lot and then BAM ... you’re in a pristine medieval forest that looks like a movie set. The falls are splendid, but make sure you enjoy them from above as well as below. From the top, the dangerous and gorgeous views of the slot canyon below are a must see. Who knew this was just off the highway? Now you know. Put it on your short list of things to see in the Stowe area.

Beautiful view, nicely maintained trail, kid friendly and high foot traffic. Wish it was a little less busy but it was a VT summer day, can’t expect to have the trail to ourselves. Was a great hike with the kiddo.

Great waterfall and short hike. Water was crystal clear and the perfect temperature to cool down in July.

Decent hike. Could hear highway the whole time and see from “window” view. Still pretty, especially when you first walk in. Great hike if you are looking to go all the way to Camels Hump!
