Great, easy loop! Plenty of options to make the trip shorter or longer as you choose.

Nice hike in the winter. A bit of scrambling to get up to the falls. After you pass the falls it's really just a flat forest road. In the winter seems like a snowmobile trail as well.

Nice winter hike. Snowshoes are probably recommended.

The Bruce Trail is a testament to Stowe’s rich ski history. This trail was cut in the 1930s and is still in perfect skiing condition to this day. You can skin or hike it from the bottom, or you can access it from the Four Runner Quad at Stowe Mountain Resort. You will need to coordinate a ride with someone back to the lifts if you do the latter. The whole thing took about 16 minutes to ski, including the Burt Trail. This trail is not recommended for beginners, since it will involve 3000 feet of moguls on a narrow slope. But if you have the skills necessary, it’s a descent to remember.

We snowshoed up this trail. There was a good amount of snow cover and it was very icy in spots, so you may need crampons. The views at the top are stunning!

Short trail, little squishy in some areas but boards laid down on the trail helps. Have to climb at the end of the trail to get the best view of the falls.

Winter conditions for sure. So beautiful!

Great place to swim!

Great climb. Many icy spots, especially towards the top. I would recommend the climb, but with caution.

Very windy at the top with little to no visual when we went, but still a great hike. Definitely bring yourself lots of water! Due to the traffic coming up (as we were trying to go down) and grounds being wet, took profanity back down to attempt and bypass some people and to be more covered from the winds.

Great hike, moderate pace took about 3 hours. Trail has some ice spots so be mindful.

Had beautiful views all the way up. Just be careful about going on a windy day. The wind will be severe at the top. My friend and I were very nervous and unable to enjoy the views like we had hoped. I would definitely go back again. One of my favorite hikes by far.

Enjoyed our hike and we were excited that the famous trail dogs were up there to greet everyone! Those dogs sure do have a perfect life!

Good hike; great views. Moderate.

A more challenging, moderate hike. The first portion is very steep, then it escalates into more technical footing, rock walking, and stream crossing. An interesting and beautiful hike. Give yourself a little more time to complete this than you may have thought for 2.8 miles.

Awesome waterfall with a lot of places for climbing and lounging in the river. View from the bottom of the falls is well worth the walk down. Of note, the steps down to the bottom are steep and can be slippery when wet and covered in leaves.

perfectly nice and easy hike. falls are lovely but not most impressive in the area. make sure you go to the bottom of the falls too. There is longer hike you can do from the falls

short walk to falls. limited view from the top and so worth the equally short walk to the bottom to get a better view

lovely hike. went up there for sunrise, which offered great light.

fantastic fall hiking
