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, nearly 20 miles of the trail are complete:
- Between St. Johnsbury and West Danville, a 17-mile section opened in August 2015.
Another segment of the trail, a 16-mile stretch between Morristown and Cambridge Junction, is under construction and scheduled to be completed in late 2015.
When finished, the Lamoille Valley Rail Trail, covering three counties and eighteen towns, will be the longest rail-trail in New England.
