Yet, once on the path, you are secluded from the busy highway (most of the time) as the pathway winds through scenic woods. It is so peaceful along the path since there are woods, wild flowers, and park-like settings along the streams with benches for resting, rustic bridges, and great views of the mountain areas. The pathway has certainly been improved in the last 20 years since I first used the rec path. In fact, the pathway is now 5.5 miles each way (about double the original length). I believe some improvements are from the generous contributions from the Stowe Land Trust.
One final plus for this path for runners training for a race: the paved path is marked every .25 miles, so you can time how fast you are running. In addition, since no motorized vehicles are allowed, you have no gas fumes!

The path winds it way from the area of the Top Notch Resort at Stowe to downtown Stowe. Although it runs near the road from downtown Stowe to Smugglers Notch, one rarely hears any vehicular noise. The river is the main noise that you hear. One last note, the path is wheelchair accessible and free.
