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 and easy walking trail. We did 6 miles out and back (3 each way). It was a great recovery walk after doing The Long Trail to the Chin the day before.

Great hike!!

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

I loved it! The only flaw is that for me I had no idea where to turn around and the constant background noise. Other than that, it was incredible!!!!

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.

Moderate elevation. Good distance. Gr8 view.

The trail is well-groomed with many platforms to navigate wet areas. Most of the trail winds through wooded areas and the canopy provides a cool, shaded walk. We were hoping for more views of the pond, but still a scenic walk in the Vermont woods.

So many wildflowers in the fields surrounding the pond! Many areas with planks that go over wet spots, a well-maintained trail. When we're back in the area we'll definitely do it again!

This is nice trail, but I warn you not to try to follow the loop to the right. The trail is poorly marked and there are many intersecting trails making it impossible to continue the loop. I went back and forth on several trails trying to get back on the loop shown in the alltrails map. I finally gave up and turned back. Luckily the app allowed me to track all my various attempts and get back to where the trail split.

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

Quick and easy. I liked the walk through the field before getting to the forest. Not as good of a view as I had hoped for but still beautiful.

I would do this trail again, definitely a challenge and so beautiful, took the fire tower trail up and the ridge trail down, the hike up was exhausting but doable and the way down was really nice, steep at times but relaxing environment

Great trail! Was very humid Friday which added some difficulty just in terms of comfort but the trail was great. Took the short, steep trail to the fire tower which was basically a steady incline up to the first outlook which had great views. The rest of the way to the fire tower involved a higher incline with a few places of hands and knees climbing. The fire tower offered amazing views high enough for significant temperature drops and wind but was beautiful. Took the ridge trail back which was wooded throughout. Balancing rock was neat to see.

Nice waterfall . Easy to get to!

Hiked this trail again with friends. It’s a fun hike with several options to take side trails!!!

NOTE: This trail is on private land owned by the Boy Scout camp across the road. They are pretty understanding but just so you know. Plus they hike up this trail every Friday between June 15 through August 10, with up to 45 people at a time.

It is a good, moderate hike with expensive views in lots of directions from the top. A fairly long hike for kids under 11, but older ones should do fine. There are some short scrambles towards the top but not bad. The trail doesn't get a ton of maintenance but is in good shape and mostly well-marked. You will see numerous animal signs, including birds and moose.

It starts as a quick cut off from a logging road which is easy to miss. After that, it's pretty clear which way to go.

Fun trip around the lake!

great views from the fire tower. Don't forget the Balancing Rock for photos.

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.

Easy, short hike with beautiful views of 3 different Mountain Ranges. Be on the look out for the Fairy Town. My only complaint would be the road that leads up to the trail head is rough. Go slow if you value your car!

This was such a fun hike. Starts out easy and gets increasingly steeper. It took me less than 2 hours up and back with time to stop for photos. I will definitely return in the Fall.

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.

An easy 2 mile stroll through a lovely northern forest. The hemlock and pine trees create a fairy tale like setting. In fact, be on the lookout for gnomes. Would’ve liked some bigger trees.

Great loop. Didn’t see anyone else on the entire trek. Moderate with a 3.5 year old on your back. Very pretty and well maintained!

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!
