What They're Saying

Unexpected little gem during our week in Stowe

Out of all the exciting things we did during our week in Stowe, Vermont, this proved to be one of the most fun. It’s great because it’s relaxing yet you get some good exercise. The scenery is beautiful and there are some fun little things to check out along the path. We did a six-hour rental which was nice since it allows you to go at your own pace and be spontaneous if you want.     _Barry T.

Cannot Say Enough Great Things about this e-bike experience! Jim, the owner is way beyond the average when it coes to customer service and peronability. Truly Superb. The Trails is beatiful and the experience with this rental outfit was absolutley the best day of our trip to VT. Thank you so much! Cant' wait to come back!     _Ryan B.

Do Not Miss This!

This is such a fun recreational activity with breathtaking scenery especially in the fall! The staff are super friendly, very accommodating and knowledgeable of the trail and area. Great little towns to stop in along the trail that have nice little cafes and restaurants. Dog's Head on the river is a must stop. Very relaxing! Lastly, I can't say enough about how fun the ebikes are. They just put an infectious smile on your face while you pedal along with the pedal assist feature. We just did the half day ride because we had other things on our itinerary but I would easily schedule the whole day next time. Absolutely worth every penny.     _Fred R.

For everyone

My wife and I took our first ebike ride here. The ebikes make it an activity that doesn't wear you out. The path is mostly level with a few inclines at road crossings. Outside, Autumn air, and turning leaves, what could be better? You can stop along your trip in one of the towns and enjoy shopping or a beverage of your choice. Jim took good care of is, explaining how to use the bikes as well as a little bit about the bike trail's many places to stop.    _Don C.
