Mountain Biking

 Stowe mountain bike trails offer something for everyone.  Each zone has it's own fun characteristics.

Stowe on

Cady Hill Town Forest

This network of 11 miles of trails is the main hub for Stowe Mountain Biking.  Trails difficulty ranges from beginner to advanced.  Florence, a flow trail, is not to be missed.  Even though it is rated as an expert trail, it is fun, fast, flowy trail that can be enjoyed by everyone.

Adams Camp

 Located at the north end of the Stowe Recreation Path, Adams camp is a great place for intermediate and advanced riders.  Thanks to new additions to this network, it creates an amazing loop full of flow and technical features.  This network also connects into the Trapp Family Lodge trails which are great for beginners.

Trapp Family Lodge Trails

These trails require a small fee to use but are well worth it.  Designed to be accessible for the whole family, these trails are a mix of double track, single track, flow and technical riding.  Add in a brewery you can stop at for a refreshment, and its an awesome place to spend the day. 

Sterling Forest

If you are looking to get away from it all, Sterling Forest offers a unique mix of technical single track, flow trail and old school rock riding.  A short drive or bike ride from town, the trail head is located at Sterling Gorge.  The addition of Callagys has made the network more connected, and ride able.  The views from Peak a View, are some of the best in Stowe and not to be missed.

 Cotton Brook

When it rains in Stowe, most trails networks are closed.  Cotton Brook is mostly double track, so it is open even when it's pouring out.  Running alone side the Waterbury Reservoir, this 10 mile stretch ends at the Little River State Park.  The park now has flow trails which is reward for the long haul on the double track.
