  • There is a farmers market right off the path on some Sundays so was a nice treat for us.  It made the path nicer as we were able to get a little local taste and souvenirs!  There are many places to eat right off path but make sure you rent a lock if you rented a bike and want to stop and eat.  Best on a bike for visitors. My wife and I stopped at the farmers market and took pictures throughout so it took 1.5 hours out.  It was only 30 min back because it's downhill if you start from downtown Stowe for your trip.
  • Very good trail for touring bike
