Best Dog-Friendly Spots in Stowe

Got a hiking dog? Stowe Pinnacle offers the some of the best views of Stowe and the Green Mountains from the 2,651 ft. summit.

The 2.9-mile round-trip trail starts out slow and ends in a steep climb at the top, so be sure to pace yourself!

Once at the top, you and your pet can enjoy the vista and take some great photos with Mount Mansfield to the northwest, Mount Hunger to the south and Camel’s Hump to the southwest!

While you’re there, be sure to say “hi” to the Stowe Pinnacle experts, Sampson and Baylor. The 10-year old golden retriever pair are often found wandering the trail and will be more than happy to take in the views with you.

For dogs (or humans!) looking for an easier walk, you can check out Stowe Recreation Path and the Quiet Path.

The Recreation Path is a 5.3-mile paved trail featuring mountain views and access to local businesses. Your pup will love wandering the greenway that winds along the Mountain Road.

The low-impact branch of the Recreation Path known as the Quiet Path is a 1.8-mile grass trail that runs past Mayo Farm and is surrounded by panoramic mountain views. A popular spot with local and visiting dog lovers, the path is a favorite for those looking to socialize and run with their family and friends.

What about a Hungry Hound? Fido doesn’t have to stay home while the rest of the family grabs a bite. Idletyme Brewing Company is pet-friendly and offers up American classics and house-brewed beer.

Your dog is free to sniff and explore the backyard while you enjoy a game of cornhole or sip a cold beverage on the beautiful patio with the rest of the family. End the night by the firepit and settle in with your furry sidekick.

Parched Pooch? Head over to local brewery The Alchemist, a favorite Stowe spot. Learn about their brewing process, featuring their second year-round beer, Focal Banger, and sample their other seasonal beers. Your pup might not be able to try the beer, but he’ll love exploring this pet and kid-friendly brewery.

Fashionista Fido? Forgot an essential or just looking for something new for your pet? The Dog and Cat is down the road and has all the supplies your pet will need.

Your furry friends will love vacationing in Stowe, but make sure they remember their manners! Dogs must be kept on leashes when in public (unless otherwise stated) and waste must always be disposed of properly.
