Upper Coos Recreational Trail

Upper Coos Recreational Trail

August, 2020 by bholdsworth7

The trail starts in Colebrook, NH and ends at Beecher Falls, just past Stewartstown, NH. One way distance is @9.5 miles. You would want to use a gravel bike or a mountain bike. The trail is easy to follow to the end. The scenery is spectacular as you follow the Connecticut River. There are 2 easy to navigate road crossings and at the end we went up to look at the Canadian border. For the way back, we rode VT102 thru Canaan all the way to RT26 (Bridge ST) that crossed back over the river into Colebrook. One note, there are ATV's on the trail. We saw a few. Everyone was very respectful of us by slowing down or waiting until we passed by. Can't say everyone would be that way, but today it was a wonderful experience. Be sure to bring water and snacks too.

Rode East to West trail is mostly cinder and well maintained crossing Route 2 in West Danville is dangerous VT drivers do not give way, Joe's Pond is a great place for a dip and a meal, next time I will end there for both.

Lamoille Valley Rail Trail

Overall a good trail

July, 2020 by potterdunn

I rode most of the western half of the trail and found it to be enjoyable. On the plus side, it is scenic, wide enough in most spots to allow riders in both directions, not overly crowded, very manageable hills, and mostly well marked. On the negative side, the gravel is looser than many trails I’ve been on, there are no benches to sit and take a break, and surprisingly, the trail is more wide open than I anticipated. It was up around 90 the day I rode it and it would have been uncomfortable if it wasn’t overcast. And being more open, there wasn’t as much wind protection as found in more forested trails. But overall, it is an enjoyable trail.

metal posts throughout the trail

July, 2020 by daninha21

I have a Polaris ranger crew and it can’t really use this trail because of the metal posts. It’s a pain to try to get through.

Lisbon NH part

July, 2020 by moehess8759

The trail starting in Lisbon is not a bike riding trail. We have fat tire e bikes and road three miles toward Bath NH. The trail is very rough with large crushed rock. The trail is for ATV and dirt bikes in the summer and snowmobiles in the winter.

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!

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

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.

Lamoille Valley Rail Trail

Great trail, very scenic

August, 2019 by Ratbas

Probably my favorite non-paved trail. The eastern section has a steady climb going all the way through, nothing hideous but you definitely maintain awareness of it. Also even by rail trail standards it does to feel a bit too straight and green-tunnelish.

The western section is far more scenic with a better variety of climbs and drops. Looking forward to watching the development of this trail. Don't pay too much attention to Google Maps as I think it's a bit behind on what's currently complete.

I'll agree with other reviewers who feel that there are minimal amenities on the trail itself, but there are a few options for places to eat and other points of interest not too far off of it. One of my favorites are the painted silos in Jeffersonville (you can also find a convenience store nearby if you need one).
