Stowe Hollow is one of the more exclusive residential sections of Stowe. Hilly dirt roads take you by large country estates. This is a good area for running if you like hills and dirt roads. There are two good loop options from Stowe Village. For a 4-mile loop, start School St. in Stowe Village, and take a left on Tabor Hill Rd. This is a steady climb. At the 1.4 mile mark, right on Cross and follow about 1 mile to the intersection of Stowe Hollow Rd. Follow the road for the return to School St. and Stowe Village. Enjoy some of the lovely homes in the area. NOTE: Use caution in winter — can be snowy and icy.
For a longer, 7-mile loop, follow the same directions but add nearly 3 miles with a loop around Upper Hollow Rd. (more fine homes), and a longer stretch along Stowe Hollow Rd. This is a challenging run: nearly 1,000 feet of elevation gain over 7 miles.
