To see Stowe and the surrounding countryside at its most spectacular, visit Stowe in autumn. Frosty mornings give way to cool, crisp days - perfect for enjoying the outdoors. The colorful hillsides - ablaze with red, orange, and gold - are truly breathtaking. It's a treat for the senses and the soul! The brilliance of Stowe's fall foliage adds an extra dimension of enjoyment to every outdoor pursuit, from serene strolls on the world famous recreation path to nerve-jangling rock climbs on the faces of Mt. Mansfield and everything in between.
