Scenic Tours of Stowe Vermont – by Horse, Ski or Car – Start the New Year off with a Great View!

Whether it’s by automobile horsepower, manpower, or by Gentle Giant horse power, enjoying scenic tours of Stowe, Vermont can be different each time you do it.  From the dramatic to the picturesque, Stowe offers a plethora of enjoyable and breathtakingly beautiful treks for the nature lover.

The Smuggler’s Notch Road – Route 108 Smuggler's notch
Established in 1978 as a State Scenic Road under the Vermont Scenic Roads Law, this scenic route passes through the area of Mansfield State Forest and offers convenient pullouts and parking areas where rock climbing and hiking are popular activities.  During the winter months when snow arrives, the winding road becomes impossible to plow and is a favorite spot for cross-country and downhill skiers.

Gentle Giants Sleigh Rides Topnotch_sleighbridge
Jingle Bells comes alive at Gentle Giants Sleigh Rides! Visitors can experience the most scenic and romantic horse-drawn ride, pulled by Percheron and Belgian draft horses in a one or two horse, open Santa-style sleigh.  Venture through a covered bridge along an open brook, while winding through a picturesque wooded trail, all the while cozying up under warm blankets and enjoying a perfect New England experience.  Open daily at 11:00.

We love this time of year at the Green Mountain Inn and hope that we can look forward to welcoming you to our little slice of wintry paradise someday soon.  Spend your day exploring and enjoying all the wonderful scenic tours of Stowe, Vermont and then come and relax by the fire, have a cup of cocoa, or enjoy our heated outdoor pool!  All of us here at the Green Mountain Inn wish you the joy of family, the gift of friends and the best of everything in 2013!
