90+ Mountain Bikers from 7 states and 2 Canadian Providences came out to enjoy some of the best Fall weather and riding Stowe could possibly offer. I did the Sterling Valley ride which is an epic 2-3 hour climb followed by an 1 hour of Super D style riding. Sterling Forest is basically the backside of Smuggler’s Notch Ski Resort and it has some great chunky old school trail. Lauren’s Loop is the highlight of the Higher elevation riding with some fast chunk that flows when you just it rip.
You then come down Maple Run road and hit the fantastic Tamarack and Tony’s Decents. On the High Speed Tony’s we got some sweet Follow footage in the vegetation sections. For more info on these rides check here or skiershop.com.
