Biking on Stowe Bike Path - in Stowe VT

Rating: Three Stars - A good five-mile-plus bike route that crosses the Little River back-and-forth via more than 6 pedestrian/bike bridges. We biked this one-way but found out later we cound have done a round trip. Excerpt from the Stowe Tourist website:
"The Stowe Recreation Path is free for use by all and remains a perennial favorite among visitors and area residents alikes. People of all ages enjoy spectacular views and a mostly flat and level path experience, allowing easy traveling along the entire length of the path. The Stowe Recreation Path is open all year long and is enjoyed by cyclists, runners, rollerbladers, as well as nordic skiers during the winter months. The Rec Path features attractive bridges, swimming holes and picnic tables, as well as many quiet spots to take in the beautiful views of Stowe and area mountains.

The weather today and in the last few days is spotty.
Rain then sun then rain then sun.

Off we go biking on the Stowe Bike Path.

We stopped at the banks of the West Branch Little River.

I can see the church steeple.

We ended our trip at the parking lot behind the Stowe Community Church.
