Skied from Chase Park to the covered bridge. River and birds beat out the traffic sounds on nearby Rte 108.

Great quick walk to gorgeous falls.

We enjoyed the short hike to the falls. Stairs were wet and steep, make sure you have good shoes, TONS of college kids there jumping off the falls, we watched from the pool below, water was perfect, very refreshing

Quiet respite amongst tall trees and fern filled ground cover. Paths well marked and maintained. Lack of sunlight allows mushrooms to florish.

Great for a morning run. Pretty views. A few small hills but nothing crazy. I just ran the southernmost 2.5 miles of it.

Rented bikes from Mountain Ops & rode all the way to downtown Stowe with family of 5. Very scenic easy ride but a lot of pedestrian traffic (nearly run off the path more than once). Some spots were pretty narrow (bridges & underpass) but path was pretty & well marked. Lots of places to stop and explore along the way to Town. Corn maze, Farmer’s market, Pie-Casso, the recreation path was well connected to the places you want to go! Save some energy for the ride back from Stowe, it seemed more uphill than down (or I was just tired from dragging the tandem behind me).

It’s a nice hike through the woods. Easier end of moderate. A fair amount of the loop is on mountain biking trails, and a big part is on an XC trail, so it’s really not used mostly for hiking.

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!

Really only for mountain biking. We felt very unsafe hiking here.

Looked great for mountain biking, though!

This is an excellent walking trail, and if your intentions are to walk and see wildlife peacefully, make sure to take the Quiet Side trail (if beginning from the downtown Stowe area). I have been here a few times, and have seen many beavers and other animals along this path. The views are great too!

Not easy for 65+. Some steep climbs that concerned us regarding return trip so we cut our hike short. Up to that point, really enjoyed the first part.

Short hike, superb waterfall and ultraclear water ! Loved it !

This is more a paved bike/walk trail than a hiking trail. We vaca with our dog and I walk this with him from our room on the Mountain Road to the various shops and restaurants. This trail is not about the view, rather, it's being able to get around areas of Stowe without walking alongside the road.

Was a great hike for our 7 and 11 year olds!

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.

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

An easy light trail down. Didn’t bring a swimming suit but wish I had! I would have gone again if my vacation was longer. Beautiful!

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!!!!

My favorite day hike in Vermont! A relatively short hike, most of this trail isn't very steep. There are 2 or 3 rock "scrambles" along the way, but mostly it's an enjoyable hike for some spectacular views at the summit.
This trail can get very crowded though so try and do it on a weekday or in the winter (even better views!)
