Lamoille Valley Rail Trail

Adventure summer 2023

January, 2023 by ckittell

We love this trail and have done all of the finished sections many times. Our goal is to bike from end to end ( and back again), staying overnight in Morrisville area. Really looking forward to it!

Stowe Recreation Path

Nice paved path with some caveats

August, 2022 by andrix

Stowe is first and foremost a heavy tourist town. We biked on Thursday and the streets, parking - and trail - were loaded with kids, dogs, strollers, scooters, joggers and of course bikes. The trail is in very good shape but the 10 or so bridges crossing the river are very narrow. Scenery is exceptional with great mountain and river views. The western most 3 miles are less crowded. The restaurants and shops along the path are nice - but also add to trail turbulence. A lot of effort for a 10 mile r/t ride.

Lamoille Valley Rail Trail

Rode only 10+ miles. Started at Cambridge Junction covered bridge parking lot. Headed East past Dog Head Falls, a must stop. Very pretty flat trail. River, bridges, cows, falls. Mix of sun and tree cover.

beautiful and not too hot

Gorgeous views along the lake as you are smack dab in the middle. The short ferry run is a fun break. Delicious place to eat on the other side to.

Lamoille Valley Rail Trail

Parking in St Albins

August, 2022 by aabernhard

Great trail.

Only need to know that the sign in St.Albans telling you to park on the trail means just that. The first 200' of the Trail are its parking lot in St. Albans.

For those of us who have said all our lives "never park on the trail" we need to learn new tricks.

Lamoille Valley Rail Trail

great rail trail experience

June, 2022 by richmedcraft

This ride was what I think of when I think of rail trail biking. A trail with only mild changes in elevation, good surface (not paved necessarily) and good scenery. I started at the Morrisville trailhead and headed west for 10 miles before returning to where I had parked. There was not much traffic on the trail (mid morning in mid June) and the weather was great. The trail was in good shape- the crushed stone and dirt surfaces did not show any ill effects from recent storms. The scenery was nice- mostly forested stream banks and agricultural fields. My hybrid bike with road tires did fine on this trail. The parking area in Morrisville came up on my i-phone GPS so it was easy to find.

Niquette Bay State Park - Allen Trail

Choice of hikes

May, 2022 by lamcdavidvt

This was my first hike of the season so I wasn’t looking for a really difficult one. This is medium, only because there are sections with steps you have to go up. But a very nice hike and good views of Lake Champlain.

Island Line Rail Trail

A must ride

Wife and I love this ride!

Island Line Rail Trail

Splendid Vermont Experience

October, 2021 by creischl

Rode the trail on a wet and windy Sunday morning--only a few hearty walkers sharing it with us. Several loons eyed us as we rode the causeway out into the middle of the lake--such fun! We started out by Lake Champlain and rode the trail out to the break and then rode into town and back. The trail is well-maintained and very well-marked. A unique ride!

Island Line Rail Trail

Scenic, peaceful trail

September, 2021 by gbardy10

We biked this trail on a cloudy fall day, but it was still beautiful. It’s perfectly maintained with stunning view of Lake Champlain. The trail is diverse, winding past the town waterfront, parks, beaches, neighborhoods, sheltered beaches, marshes with wading birds and a causeway across the lake. Unfortunately the bike ferry was closed as it’s only open in weekends in the fall. A great way to spend an afternoon.
