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.
Wife and I love this ride!
I’ve used this trail dozens of times, biking, walking and jogging in and around Montpelier. And now it’s expanded! I assume the TrailLink map will be updated to show it, but between Taylor and Main streets is connected, and the trail extends east all the way to Gallison Hill Road.
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!
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.
We rented bikes by the trail head in Jeffersonville and took the rail trail into Morrisville, where we stopped into Black Cap coffee for a snack, then rode back. The trail was not busy and was a beautiful mix of farmlands, mountain vistas and river side views. It’s about 30 miles round trip. Really enjoyed this rail trail.
We rode today (8/31/21) from Hyde Park to Jeffersonville; the western part of the most recently built 1b section. The Trail is great overall, a few repairs have been made using oversized gravel adding a few spots of new and unnecessary roughness.
On the west end of this section avoid the Greenway after the Jeffersonville parking lot off Route 15 and approach Jeffersonville via Route 15 and Main Street. The Greenway after the Jeffersonville parking rail is a very rough trail and may cause you to miss the useful bike store and eateries on Main Street in Jeffersonville.
I have previously ridden the section from Cambridge Jct to Morrisville and enjoyed the ride through the Vermont Farms near the Lamoille River. Yesterday (August 25th) my wife and I rode the section of the which is now open and in terrific shape from the Swanton Railroad Museum ( where we had shady parking) to Sheldon Jct. where the Lamoille Valley RT intersects with the Missisquoi Valley Trail near Hwy 105. This was a fairly flat shady ride of 11.2 miles. We rode both ways and only passed one other bike on the trail. We were glad that the trail was level and shaded on this 90 degree day. There were no other parking areas between the railroad museum and Sheldon Jct and also no benches or picnic tables but we carried a picnic table cover and had our packed lunch on it in a shady, breezy spot that made for an ideal repast. It was a magical day for us and a terrific ride. Did I mention that it was also my birthday. It was a super ride and day!
First time on an e-bike although road bikes Will do just fine on this beautifully maintained flat trail. We rode from Johnson to the Morrisville end and back. The temperature was in the upper 80s but the ride was still perfectly comfortable.It is a very Straight trail but the landscape varies enough to keep it interesting.
Well maintained. Great signage. Beautiful area. Thanks!
Rode with my wife and 1-year-old in between showers today, from Morrisville. The trail was in excellent shape, and passes through peaceful terrain. My son enjoyed seeing the dairy cows along the trail.
We want to give a shout out to Morrisville. This little village has all kinds of public art, and most of the downtown businesses have beautiful flowers on the street. We had lunch at Black Cap Coffee and Beer. Great sandwiches and coffee, with a wide variety of wares and art by local artists and artisans. Just the type of local business we love to find when we're out and about enjoying the trails.
This is our third year coming to Stowe and enjoying this path. Passes by a great mix of farms, parks, marshes, as well as urban areas. When we rode yesterday, the farm next to the trail had two young goats and two calves out for our 1-year-old to enjoy. A dozen or so restaurants are adjacent to the trail and have bike parking. Cars have always yielded when we've crossed the two streets. It's busy, but this is our favorite path in a developed area.
