Realtor Grant Helps Build New Mountain Bike Trail In Stowe

The Lamoille Area Board of REALTORS® was just awarded a grant from the National Association of Realtors, which helped to build a new trail in Cady Hill Forest.  The trail was just completed by the Stowe Mountain Bike Club, and is a re-route of an existing trail that will now allow riders to more easily continue from the end of Cady Hill Connector through to the upper tier of the Cady Hill Forest and Schween trail network.  The trail is fun and flowy, up or down, and not as steep a climb as the old alternative.

Many thanks to the Lamoille Area Board of Realtors, for recognizing the importance of recreation and its benefits for our community.  And, also to the Stowe Mountain Bike Club , and Stowe Land Trust, who both continue to enhance this multi-use trail network, and natural resource.  The board of Realtors was also recently instrumental in securing a grant for the new Lamoille Valley Rail Trail.

 

Fall Hikes in Stowe

This is the time of year when many take to the trails and the woods to enjoy the changing scenery and experience the wonders that fall brings.  The leaves are turning, and the trails are already getting covered with all the different fall colors.  It's been warm and dry, somewhat unlike fall, but as of Thursday, the temperatures will be cooler, and perhaps more invigorating to get out in to the woods.

This is my favorite time to go hiking, and the following are some of my favorites:

  1. Taylor Lodge, is a 3+ mile moderately traveled hike, starting from the iconic Trout Club and Lake Mansfield. This trail takes you through some of the most scenic woods in the area.  The drive out to the Trout Club is beautiful as well.  On the way back to town, you can stop at Long Winter Farm for farm fresh veggies, eggs and meats.
  2. Stowe Pinnacle Trail is a favorite among many.  After the hardest part of the climb, about 3/4 of the way up, it levels out, and ultimately ends up on top of open rock formations, with a panoramic view of all of Stowe, looking toward Mt. Mansfield.  Be sure to bring a wind-breaker in case it's breezy on top.
  3. The Mill Trail off of Notchbrook Road in Stowe, is rich in history, as well as scenic.  This is an easy to moderate hike on 31 acres of land conserved by Stowe Land Trust.  You will find a historic cabin there that has recently been restored,  with the  goal of educating the public about this historic area, and to further SLT’s mission of land conservation.
