About Stowe, Vermont

 

Stowe is an internationally known, four season vacation area.
Most visitors know about the legendary riding & skiing (downhill, x-country
and back country) on and around Mt. Mansfield, Spruce Peak and the Trapp Family Lodge.

Many are also familiar with the remarkable reds and yellows of fall.
And an increasing number is discovering that Stowe is a fun surrounding
for a myriad of spring and summer events. Mountain Biking is

 late summer  /  Foliage

 

The leaves are notoriously difficult to time right. Best strategy is to take two weeks (last week in Sept & 1st week in Oct), use Stowe as your base, rent a sporty convertible and take road-trips north & south depending on where the peak leaves are.

 

Fall/Autumn activities

  • foliage hikes - Pinnacle, Mt. Hunger, Mt. Mansfield. etc.
  • foliage drives - local back country roads, the notch, north east kingdom, Toll road
  • apple picking
  • hunting (need license)
  • mountain biking
