PROJECT TRAIL:Lamoille Valley Rail Trail

  • States: Vermont
  • Counties: Caledonia, Franklin, Lamoille, Washington
  • Length: 93.2 miles
  • Trail end points: Swanton to St. Johnsbury

The Lamoille Valley Rail Trail is a growing trail network across northern Vermont that will one day stretch 93 miles between St. Johnsbury and Swanton. The trail is being built along the former route of the Lamoille Valley Railroad, which once served as a vital east-west transportation corridor from 1877 until its closing in 1994.

Currently, a handful of miles of the trail are complete:

Two additional segments of the trail are scheduled to begin construction in the spring of 2014:

  • St. Johnsbury to West Danville (13.5 miles)
  • Morristown to Cambridge Junction (16 miles)

When finished, the Lamoille Valley Rail Trail, covering three counties and eighteen towns, will be the longest rail-trail in New England.
