You are planning a vacation for your whole family, and that includes the family dog. You want to make sure that your dog has just as good a time as you do, so you must make sure to plan your activities in advance. Here are a few Stowe Vermont activities for you to consider.


There are plenty of hiking trails for you and your dog to enjoy in the summer. Most of the areas require you to keep your dog on a leash. Smugglers Notch State Park offers some breathtaking views of mountains and waterfalls and has several camp grounds where your entire family can commute with nature. Moss Glen Falls trail is another beautiful hiking area for you and your dog to enjoy. It consists of 2.9 miles of easy terrain and takes you along a beautiful waterfall.

Gondola Sky Ride

The Gondola at Mount Mansfield offers some truly spectacular view of the hills and valleys of Vermont and during the summer months you can enjoy them with your dog right beside you. You must keep your friend on a leash the entire time, and unfortunately dogs are not currently allowed in the restaurant at the summit.

The Alchemist

If your travel plans include a trip to a brewery, you needn’t leave your dog at home. This small brewery will let you tour its facilities with your leashed dog, which makes it one of our top recommended pet-friendly Stowe Vermont activities. You can even bring your furry friend along to a beer tasting from 11:00 am to 7:00 pm Tuesday through Saturday.

Your dog will love this area where he or she can run around without his leash and socialize with other vacationing canines. Only well-trained dogs should come to this area, as it is unfenced.
