Summer Hiking in Stowe!
Swap out your ski boots for hiking boots
Stowe is a hugely popular destination in the winter, but did you know it’s just as fun in the summer? So swap out your skiing boots with hiking boots, and try out these three local hikes. The levels range from easy to moderate, making them appropriate for all levels of outdoor enthusiasts!
Frequented by locals and visitors alike, this 2.9-mile trail is short, but pretty steep – so get ready to get your heart rate up. And once you get to the top, you’ll be rewarded with fantastic views of the neighboring Green Mountains.
If you’re feeling a bit more ambitious, try your hand (or more accurately, your feet) at this one. Located in nearby Waterbury, this 3.7 mile hike – it’ll take approximately 3 to 4 hours to complete – steeply ascends a steady slope, and offers expansive views in nearly every direction from the summit.
Situated right off of Vermont’s Route 108, this popular trail in Smugglers Notch is steep, but don’t worry: it’s thoroughly manageable at 2 miles round trip. At the top, you’ll discover a picturesque alpine pond – perfect for photos!
