Lamoille Valley Rail Trail

Trail is growing a little bit more, and another big trestle has been added

July, 2019 by bobwhite

The Lamoille Valley Railtrail is a wonderful trail. I ride this trail a lot, usually once a week in the summer. I ride the two main sections ST J to West Danville and Morrisville to Cambridge Junction, both about 17 miles long.

There's some good news, this new section is just 1.5 miles long, stretching from the Mississiquoi Rail Trail intersection to Bridge Street in Sheldon, but this short section contains the longest original railroad bridge with great new decking on it. Best for now to ride this section in conjunction with a Mississiquoi trail ride for now.
Hopefully the complete 93 mile Lamoille Valley Railtrail will be totally completed in a few years, along with the existing 26 mile Mississiquoi RT, northern Vermont will offer some great rail-trails!

Presidential Rail Trail

Well maintained and so pretty

July, 2019 by kate2030

Last July, I reported that the bridges were a pretty sketchy to go over with horses. I am so happy to report that the bridge's planks have been replaced. I've ridden several days lately and each time the gentlemen brush-hogging were so polite turning off their motors so they wouldn't spook the horses. All the bikes and hikers I have met are so sweet and friendly. I just love to ride my horses on this trail. Thank you to whomever is responsible for maintaining the P R/T!

Millstone Hill West Bike Path

Nice Run

July, 2019 by cbroman

It is a little short at 1.4 miles but a nice trail. If you are a flat lander like me, the hills can be a little bit of a challenge but not bad.

Island Line Rail Trail

Amazing views of Lake Champlain

July, 2019 by godsmelissa

This trail was amazingly beautiful. My family and I kept stopping to take in the scenery. The nice volunteer at the ferry on the end stated it was 4miles from Airport Park- where we started to the end where you catch the bike ferry- for a nominal cost, which we chose not to as it was only 1 more paved mile on south hero island then all road- we had children in a trailer and it wasn’t for us to continue. Some spots on the trail had good washout and was marked w/ caution cones and even some areas were one way accessible at a time to opposing traffic. Everyone we encountered were all courteous to this and we had no issues in waiting or riding on. There was some hills leaving Airport Park and a marked rd crossing but again no issues. As well it was packed dirt and some grass areas. This trail is heavily traveled with foot traffic as well and many ppl walking dogs too. Well worth a visit. The playground at airport park was fun and the bathrooms were open too so that was good. Our trip was the second weekend in June. The weather had a nice breeze and sun all day but in that area it is still considered out of season till end of June

Niquette Bay State Park - Allen Trail

Accessibility of Allen Trail

June, 2019 by cari4

My daughter, who uses a power scooter, and I decided to check out how accessible Niquette Bay State Park is yesterday. First, we were greeted warmly and mentioned that we were looking to use their accessible trails. We were told that there was really only one trail that we could access, which was the Allen Trail. It is about a half-mile long and is a beautiful setting. It doesn't take long and little effort to be one with nature for a while. I recommend this trail if you are looking for a nice stroll in the woods. You cannot get to the water from any trail in this park if you are looking to do so from the accessible trail. It is a beautiful park and you could bring a picnic lunch and eat at their picnic tables. Enjoy!!

Island Line Rail Trail

Island Line Trail via a loop ride

June, 2019 by sschwinn

I rode the trail last weekend via a loop utilizing routes 2 and 127. I parked in Niquette Bay State Park and rode a clockwise loop, meeting the trail at Leddy Park- about 35 miles in all.
The paved portion of the trail north of Burlington is excellent and suitable for any bike type.
The causeway is a wonderful ride but due to loose stone and gravel not suitable for a road bike. I struggled in parts on my cyclocross bike. It can be especially tricky when there are wobbly riders coming in the other direction as the causeway can be pretty narrow in spots.
The ferry operates Friday- Sunday at this time of year (check the website) and was $8 for a one way trip.
I intended to check out Sand Bar State Park on the way back but it was closed due to high water in Lake Champlain!

Island Line Rail Trail

Absolutely the best

June, 2019 by yiwang100

This is the most beautiful and unique trail in the world. The conditions are perfect for biking as well as walking. The short ferry ride only adds its charming. I just cannot say more how much I like it. Don't miss it.

Warren to East Haverhill Railroad Grade Trail

could be better

June, 2019 by DrMemory

I did this in the summer of 2018. as others have mentioned, quite rough in spots. quite wet in spots. and sandy, i hate sandy.

could be a nice trail but as it is, i wouldn't recommend it for bikes, even a mountain bike. also, beware of the dogs.

with the exception of the Northern Rail Trail, New Hampshire needs to step up their game regarding their rail trails.

Northern Rail Trail

Will go back to see more

May, 2019 by slipsoup

We started our ride at the Hannah Duston parking lot in Boscawen. The RTC map takes you to where the ride starts but not the parking area. The parking area is shortly after you get off I-93. It's a Park and Ride lot. There are good signs to indicate which way the ride starts. It starts 0.5 miles down the street. The first mile or so is out in the open. After that, it goes into a shaded area. At this time of year, the mosquitoes are plentiful and ready to bite. The surface of the trail is crushed gravel and easily ridden with a hybrid or mountain bike. Sadly, we had to cut our ride short after about 5 miles due to a bike malfunction. We plan to go back and give it another try. An additional point of interest is the monument to Hannah Duston, which is located to the left of the trailhead kiosk, across a little bridge. It sits on the banks of the Merrimack River.

Northern Rail Trail

Mascoma River Greenway now open

April, 2019 by dickmackay

The first section of the Mascoma River Greenway - which was a section of the Northern Railroad - open in 2018 from High St. in downtown Lebanon westerly two miles to Glen Rd. in West Lebanon. Surface is 12-foot wide pavement. The MRG is not a continuation of the Northern Rail Trail, but the distance between on local streets is very short.

Presidential Rail Trail

115/115B to Cherry Pond

March, 2019 by bonnie1397

We rode this stretch last fall. Beautiful ride. The trail is well maintained and we only saw a couple of people. My only complaint is that we had to pick a non-traditional place to park (intersection of 115/115B off the side of the road) because most of the public parking areas are not large enough or set up well enough to bring in and turn around a huge horse trailer, especially during the busy times. I would love to be able to ride from the Bowman but need to be sure that we can get turned around and not get blocked in. We may try that this summer. :)
