Stowe Recreation Path

One of our favorites

February, 2017 by jadajudy

We have been riding this with our grandkids for 10+ years. Now they are in high school. Enjoy the ride, the beaches along the river, restaurants and shops along the way. You can ride it up and back in an hour, or make stops and enjoy for the day.

Geocaching Along the LVRT

November, 2016 by movillesmiths

There are two great geocache series on the east end of the tail. Beginning near Joe's Pond and ending near GoodFella's Restaurant is the Vermont Star with 50 caches. Picking up there is the Maple Leaf which continues on to St. Jay with 40 caches. To obtain the correct coordinates of the caches you must answer questions about VT and maple sugaring. When we did the star, we did it in two segments and I rode back on the slightly uphill trail with no problems to get the truck. When we did the leaf, we left one vehicle in St. Jay so as not to have to ride back. Bodda rides an older, single-speed tricycle and had no problems on the trail. Though we live in Morrisville, we have only tried one short segment of the trail there but have heard great things about it and want to try it soon. It is hard to imagine the work that went into cutting through the ledges and filling the gullies. When you drive routes 15 and 2, it's hard to believe how hilly they are but just a short distance away is the almost level rail trail. Gramp

Missisquoi Valley Rail-Trail

Disappointing

October, 2016 by city biker

Last weekend, my friends and I biked the trail from St. Albans. Except for a pizza restaurant, there were no services/portapotties at the Sheldon parking lot area as indicated on a local map of the trail. Because of the weather forecast we only went 15 miles North on the trail. The crushed gravel really slowed us down to about 7-8 mph. Though I had the appropriate tires, And I'm no speed demon, I don't like to ride that slowly. All said, What I saw was pretty, and I would be willing to bike this trail again from Richford. The southern leg of this ride was underwhelming.

Missisquoi Valley Rail-Trail

What a gem

September, 2016 by suzann.erben

We did not think it is a boring trail, as another reviewer wrote. So much to see of the Vermont countryside!

Beautiful Cambridge Jct to Morrisville

August, 2016 by alanw.belcher

I rode Cambridge Jct to Hyde Park & return one day, then Morrisville to Hyde Park another. The parking area in Cambridge Jct is very nice. There's a nice shelter with portapotty and even a train theme picnic area adjacent. Smuggler's Notch Ski Area has done a lot to improve this spot this summer (carpenters were working on the train the day I was there).

The trail from there to Johnson is pretty much level, with a few small/short grades, the trail is crushed granite hard-pack. The town road crews maintain the trails in their municipality, and some cut the brush more often. Sometimes the grass & weeds will whack your shins as you ride, but the tree limbs had been kept off the trail. You ride along the river, through fields of fodder and forested areas.

Johnson has a beautiful kiosk with water and a portapotty, and downtown is just a half mile away, down Depot St. From there to Hyde Park is more fields, forests, river and a beautiful through truss bridge.

Hyde Park to Morrisville is mainly uphill. If you go east to west it's a leisurely ride. This section is mainly wooded, with high fills down to the river in places. The Lamoille River is always nearby. You also cross quite a few roads, and the through truss bridge in Morrisville.

Just west of Morrisville village you pass right behind the Lost Nation brewery, and many trail users stop to sample their creations. The depot in Morrisville is a restaurant as well. And about 1/4 mile south of the depot is a bike shop if you need any supplies. Parking in Morrisville is adjacent to the depot.

I went a short distance east of Morrisville, even down the unimproved section. Not sure how far you can go, but I do know there are a couple of bridges removed. The trail is railroad ballast, with tall grass/weeds.

Ammonoosuc Rail Trail

again, disappointed.

August, 2016 by DrMemory

I reviewed this trail a few years ago.

There is still a fair amount of ballast and gravel to ride through, but less than I remember. However, the overall condition of the trail has deteriorated since my last visit. Specifically, holes and washboards. Maybe this isn't as noticeable on an ATV, but on a bike it's miserable, even with a suspension. It got so bad, that when I returned (I went from Littleton to Bath and back) from Bath, I got on the road (US302) and stayed there for 9 miles before returning to the trail.

This seems to be more of an ORV trail than a bike trail. I saw 20 or so ATVs but not a single bike. ATV riders were friendly and considerate.

The scenery was a little better than I remember.

Still, as a bike trail, this one leaves a lot to be desired. 4 of 10.

Joes Pond to St Johnsbury

August, 2016 by youker

This is a wonderful downhill trail especially if your wife will drive shuttle. I was able to do much of it in higher gears. Joes Pond is a hydro project and it is interesting to see the height of the dam in the little town of West Danbury. Great old country store across the road from the ample parking area for the trail in town. Youker

Ammonoosuc Rail Trail

Access to Bath

August, 2016 by youker

I just want to correct the comment about access to Bath being a steep walk up hill. That route of ballast stones is true and awful but if you go under the bridge north there is a nice easy route up to the bridge and the village or visa versa. I did Bath to Woodsville again this August and although there are a lot of ATVs the track was firm in most places. Youker

Lamoille Valley Rail Trail

Morrisville to Cambridge Junction

August, 2016 by youker

As you can see from other reviews this section is now finished and open. It is a great ride and used a lot. On the east it starts just east of Morrisville at the crossing of Rt. 15A. It ends to the west at a parking area and rest room at Poland Bridge just off Rt. 15 at Cambridge Junction 16.9 miles distant. There it joins the mile and a half long Greenway Trail to Jefferson which is not as developed as the LVTR. (grass grows in the trail) There is an excellent brochure and map available at local stores.

Lamoille Valley Rail Trail

Really nice ride from St. J to Danville and back

August, 2016 by nedwhitney

We did this ride on a beautiful sunny Saturday in August, and saw almost no one on the trail. It is mostly shaded, which was welcome on a warm sunny day. Not much in the way of views, but very nice anyway. There is a mild but steady uphill grade almost all of the way from St. J to Danville, so you have to work a little, but that makes the ride back very pleasant...and much quicker. A great addition to the Northeast Kingdom.

10 miles out then turned around.

July, 2016 by hillk

Really flat and kinda boring. Not very shaded. Would be much prettier in the autumn.

Lamoille Valley Rail Trail

Good surface with no Rest areas

July, 2016 by hans.pfadt

My wife and I ventured on this trail the 4th. of July weekend 2016.We were somewhat disappointed in the following on this trail since there was a lot of good said in the media during the recent opening of this stretch. We are experienced trail riders and started in Morrisville towards Cambridge Junction. Approx.16 miles in either direction. The surface was great and rideable along with a lot of scenic river and mountain views. Unfurtunatly there were no benches to pull over and rest on the entire trail section. It also bypasses the Town of Johnson completely without signage.
Some of the local merchants could benefit greatly with selling some cold drinks, a sandwich or even a creamee to the trail rider.
The only stop with that one can make is on the Morrisville side at the Lost Nation Brewing Co. which is next to the trail.
Certain sections need the side of the trail mowed of unruly weeds that have taken over the trail already in a short period of time.The weeds are so overgrown that the travel lane is down to one narrow path stopping oncoming riders. This trail can be a great one with a little brushhog maintenance and some benches and signage.
