Presidential Rail Trail

Great trail - some construction - lots of horse flies!

June, 2020 by bob_hatcher

We started on the eastern end. About a mile in there is some construction with heavy machinery and a very rough trail. Other than that, the trail is in good condition. For about a mile, the views are stupendous but most of the trail is in a forest canopy. There is a beautiful pond with lots of marshland.

The BIG issue is the bugs. The horseflies are terrible. In the hour and a half we were out we each got bit a dozen times and swatted away hundreds. I'm not sure if this is all the time or seasonal, or just this section of the trail, but it'll keep us from this segment.

Next time we'll go to the mid-point and try from there.

Ammonoosuc Rail Trail

Scenic easy trail - use a mountain bike

June, 2020 by nhpete

I live near this trail, and ride on it regularly. It is nearly flat, and has outstanding scenery and wildlife. Trail has some rough areas, which are easily overcome with even a light duty mtb. People riding narrow tired bikes will be unhappy. Trail is shared with ATV's which are mostly absent on weekdays.

In winter this is a well groomed snowmobile trail. Easy winter riding with properly equipped fat bike. Trail usually very hard and icy. Studded tires recommended. Light use by snowmobiles on weekdays.

Lamoille Valley Rail Trail

A Favorite Trail!

May, 2020 by ngwright

I recently rode the eastern section, starting in St. Johnsbury, riding to Danville, then back to St. Johnsbury. This is definitely the direction to go! It is gradually uphill, at railroad grade, for the 13 miles to Danville. You then have an easy 13 mile ride back, coasting or barely pedaling all the way! Most of the trail was shaded before noon. It is one of the best maintained trails I have been on, and I have ridden dozens of them throughout the U.S. There are several cuts through rocks where the temperature drops, welcome on a summer day! Crossing Peacham Road, there is a beautiful view of the mountains to the east. Even though I live an hour and a half away, I will definitely return to ride this trail again!

Mascoma River Greenway

Mascoma River Rail Trail

May, 2020 by jnich8888

Great 2.5 mile paved trail. Easy to get to from the end of the NRT. Its all downhill from Lebanon center trail head, but the grade is not too steep, and biking back wasn't too hard, just a bit slower than going out. The trail is new and in great shape. Very scenic. Handy ice cream stand visible from trail head. We biked it on Sunday Memorial Day weekend, then did a portion of the NRT.

Arms Park Trail

Beautiful little trail

May, 2020 by ikdotter

These are small, meandering dirt trails that can be best accessed off the bike path. There is no sign to indicate where the trail starts. After Killarney Drive, heading south towards Burlington on the path, just before the small bridge, the path is on the left up a very short incline, then veers to the right or you can go straight. In the spring, there are a multitude of wildflowers. It's a nice alternative to the bike path, which can get crowded in warm weather.

Northern Rail Trail

Boscawen to Highland Lake

May, 2020 by kevin.keohan

Rode north from Boscawen to Highland Lake about 15 miles. Trail is in excellent shape. Very slight grade riding north such that you can hardly notice it. Ride south was faster as it was essentially downhill. Great day

Stowe Recreation Path

early spring riding

March, 2020 by pollard3

I looked forward to taking a spin up this trail on my new Roscoe Trek. The first two miles (starting in town) were snow packed and groomed for Nordic skiing. Even so, the trail was a lot of fun. Being a sunny day, a lot of folks were out biking, cross country skiing and walking - but not so many to slow you down.

Ammonoosuc Rail Trail

No longer suitable for biking

November, 2019 by vtstream

My wife and I rode this trail a few years ago on touring bicycles and really enjoyed it. We returned recently and were unable to use the trail due to atv’s and four wheelers chewing up the surface to the point that it was impossible to ride. Let’s hope NH doesn’t decide to ruin the other rail trails in the state. Really a shame

Stowe Recreation Path

Stowe Rec Path

September, 2019 by paulbroderick41

My wife and I drove up from NYC On Fri morning to ride this trail. Parking was easy in a public lot on Weeks Hill Rd off Mountain Rd. The Path crosses Weeks Hill Rd and we road from there towards the mountain. You cross the road once and several bridges over a river. We were lucky it was a Friday and the trail was empty. There are a few spots where the path is narrow so if it were crowded it could be an issue. Heading towards the mountain it is a slight uphill so when you come back there are places were you Chan coast for a while if you wish.

Island Line Rail Trail

Great trail - cause way section closure

September, 2019 by tn1637

We had a great ride on most of the trail today. A heads up to all that the causeway section is closed for repairs until May of 2020. Work is currently being performed around Las Island at mile 10 on the trail. We look forward to riding the entire trail when we pass through Vermont again in 2020.
