Fun Facts – Did you know?

Stowe Fall Foliage

  • Leaves of the sugar maple, red maple, red oak, sweet gum, black gum and sourwood, typically turn hues of red. However, they can produce yellow leaves as well.
  • Stowe’s first designated ski trail, the Bruce Trail, was cut by the CCC in 1933.  You can follow the Bruce Trail today to see the beginnings of this famous ski trail.  We can direct you at Stone Hill.
  • The first Nordic ski center in the U.S. began in 1968 at the Trapp Family Lodge in Stowe.
  • The Toll road is a wonderful way to see the foliage both as you drive up the mountain and when you stop at the Octagon Café with it’s deck.  In 1937 a thousand-foot tow rope, powered by a Cadillac engine, was installed on the Toll road.
  • Leaves of birch, elm, poplar, redbud and hickory, always turn hues of gold & yellow.
  • Leaves of the Sumac tree produce a maroon color.

 Be overwhelmed by crisp fall air, the natural beauty of Stowe’s stunning fall season that changes its colors and vibrancy every day, and the warmth of the Stone Hill Inn — soft, quiet, and undisturbed.
