The Stowe Recreation Path is at the top of my to-do list for anyone visiting or living in Vermont. Whether you're biking, running, walking your dog or pushing a stroller, the five-mile path is a perfect place to enjoy the outdoors.
Mostly flat and level, the path meanders along the West Branch River and features bridges, swimming holes, park benches, picnic tables and scenic views of Mount Mansfield.
The award-winning path is free to use and is open year-round (I'm thinking about trying Nordic skiing on the path this winter!). You can access the path off Main Street/Route 100 behind the Stowe Community Church or along Route 108.
