Wonderful bike trail. Narrow in places so need to watch for walkers and other bikers.
I've always been a great fan of the Lamoille Valley Rail Trail from it's very beginning when there was only 1.5 miles in St Johnsbury and now it's 93 miles long!
As I write this, because of flooding earlier this summer, about 21 miles of trail are closed as the VT AOT repair damage to the trail.
But this review is focused on the 20 miles of trail from Cambridge Junction that head north and west to Sheldon Junction. This has instantly become my favorite stretch of the LVRT, but it was a bit disappointing as far as trail surface.
The good stuff first, this whole stretch of trail shows off the rural side of Vermont, it's quiet, peaceful, and has easy undulations to elevation and absolutely beautiful scenery. I really enjoyed this ride.
About the halfway point the trail passes through the small village of East Fairfield, the day I rode through there was a welcoming food truck open just as you enter the village. There was also a convenience store down the road a short distance. East Fairfield is the only real stop for food or water, the trail does not pass through the Town of Fairfield as it turns north.
The one detraction from the ride on this portion is the trail surface. The trail surface from Route 109 in Cambridge all the way to Bridge St in Sheldon has much more loose gravel than other sections of the LVRT.
It requires a little bit more work to ride the surface mile after mile, and even a couple of times my front tire bogged down a bit where the gravel "bunched up".
It's not a game changer, but the surface is definitely different from other parts of the trail. Overall, as I said before, this is now my favorite trail section on the LVRT... it's so peaceful... I'll be riding it again soon!
This trail is not suitable for biking at all. There are very large rocks and in places they dumped sand on the trail. Only rode from Littleton to Lisbon because the riding was so rough. We have hybrid bikes with suspension but we felt like it was way too rough! Never again! Get rid of the ATVs that tear up the trail or market this only to them! ¿
Parked across from the Danbury County Store. Headed west towards Grafton. Only saw a coupe peopling using the trail this late Friday afternoon. Trail was smooth and dry even with rain the prior day.
September 2,2023. Trail is in sad shape in some areas. Sandy and rough. My fat tire bike handled it well but I can see where it could be issue for skinny tires. The scenery outweighs the bad trail. Most problem areas are caused by ATV’s and dirt bikes. Everyone on the trail is courteous and that helps.
Just completed this trail and had a great tome. We have mtn bikes and had zero issues (not really for road bikes). There were some ATV and dirt bike riders on the lower part of the trail, but all were respectful and slowed down around us and for a Saturday it really wasn’t busy and we had the trail to ourselves most of the time. I would definitely recommend and do again.
Went from the Flume parking area to Skookumchuck and back , this way you get most of the elevation gain done the first half of the ride and get some great downhills to finish up. Spectacular morning ride …
I'm riding an eletric wheelchair & it's a nice ride.Off the street. Barbara
Multiple times now Ive brought my bike when I drop my car off at Nucar Tilton. A quick ride around the corner by McDonalds and I jump on the rail trail to Franklin. Surface is nice for road tires (28) and only one small section of road.
I've done this whole trail and there are two distinctive parts. The western part has many long stretches with a narrow strip of dirt surrounded by grass. It's also not smooth riding.
The eastern part in Gotham has much better parking and the trail itself is a much more comfortable ride. Also, if you leave from Gotham there are some good eateries to go to after.
Lots to see on an easy ride with plenty of cool places to stop and eat.
The W. Danville store and Joe's pond as well as many scenic views and parking. The whole trail is now completed except I'm worried about the rain and possible damage. So, I will call the shuttle service in St. J to find out about the access after the recent storm.
I love this trail but usually start before 7 am as when people start walking the trail they don't walk on their side of the trail. Head north from the Flume parking area and the ride is uphill. The ride is fast coming back down south but again beware of people on the trail
