Paul Joseph DuMont and Alma Clark DuMont Conservation Property
The property consists of mostly mature northern hardwood forest and a semi-open meadow adjacent to the Little River. The Little River Block of Mount Mansfield State Forest abuts the conserved property to the west and south, and town-owned land borders to the east. Alex's Trail, built by the Stowe Mountain Bike Club in memory of local outdoor enthusiast, Alex Roberts, loops through the property from the trailhead at town-owned property at the end of Adams Mill Road. The 1.5 mile meandering trail is open for hiking, biking, snowshoeing and skiing.
Since taking ownership of the property, Stowe Land Trust has been restoring the native biodiversity and wildlife habitat quality on the property by removing non-native, invasive plants; planting native trees and shrubs in the riparian zone along the river; and brush hogging the meadow to maintain quality habitat for pollinators and other wildlife.
Access to DuMont Meadow is from town-owned property at the end of Adams Mill Road in Moscow. The property is open for hiking, biking, snowshoeing, and skiing. Alex's Trail can support occasional and light horseback riding.
From the intersection of Route 100 and Route 108 in Stowe, travel south on Route 100 and turn right onto Moscow Road. Turn left onto Adams Mill Road just before the bridge that crosses over the Little River. Take the first right to continue on Adams Mill Road continuing on the dirt track past the last house. Parking for 3-4 vehicles is located at the small pull-off on the left just before the gate. Walk along the track past the gate and look for the trailhead sign at the far end of the clearing.
