Stowe Recreation Path

summer cycling in stow

July, 2024 by dave99nh

Love riding this paved path along the river. Lots to see in nature and plenty of stopping point. Swimming even and refreshment sts ds for all taste

Lamoille Valley Rail Trail

Outstanding bike trail

June, 2024 by pyattjm

We rode from Oxbow Riverfront Park (plenty of parking, bathroom) in Morrisville to Cambridge Junction. Round trip about 34 miles. The surface was perfect for our dual sport bikes. Compact smooth gravel. Lost Nation brewery is on the path about a mile from Oxbow. Nice place to have a beer after.

Missisquoi Valley Rail Trail

not enjoyable for me

June, 2024 by rjdennis

The trail is not that developed, lots of narrow double track with grass in between. Would be better on a mountain bike

Stowe Recreation Path

Fun trail!!!

June, 2024 by brhy7px2cf

We visited this trail while in vacation in Vermont. It was a nice 5+mile trail out and back ~10.85 miles. It had 10 bridges and lots of S curves which made it fun! We were there on a Tuesday 6/2024 so not a ton of people but enough to have to keep a look out. We would definitely tell others about this trail.

Beebe Spur Rail Trail

VERY nice ride - good scenery, nice trail.

June, 2024 by jcenh

Stopped here on our way back from Ottawa ON, CA

We rode just up to the border but, since we just came from Canada, we didn't cross.

Lamoille Valley Rail Trail

LVRT: A beautiful rural ride from Cambridge Junction to Sheldon Junction (about 20 miles)

September, 2023 by bobwhite

I've always been a great fan of the Lamoille Valley Rail Trail from it's very beginning when there was only 1.5 miles in St Johnsbury and now it's 93 miles long!

As I write this, because of flooding earlier this summer, about 21 miles of trail are closed as the VT AOT repair damage to the trail.

But this review is focused on the 20 miles of trail from Cambridge Junction that head north and west to Sheldon Junction. This has instantly become my favorite stretch of the LVRT, but it was a bit disappointing as far as trail surface.

The good stuff first, this whole stretch of trail shows off the rural side of Vermont, it's quiet, peaceful, and has easy undulations to elevation and absolutely beautiful scenery. I really enjoyed this ride.

About the halfway point the trail passes through the small village of East Fairfield, the day I rode through there was a welcoming food truck open just as you enter the village. There was also a convenience store down the road a short distance. East Fairfield is the only real stop for food or water, the trail does not pass through the Town of Fairfield as it turns north.

The one detraction from the ride on this portion is the trail surface. The trail surface from Route 109 in Cambridge all the way to Bridge St in Sheldon has much more loose gravel than other sections of the LVRT.
It requires a little bit more work to ride the surface mile after mile, and even a couple of times my front tire bogged down a bit where the gravel "bunched up".

It's not a game changer, but the surface is definitely different from other parts of the trail. Overall, as I said before, this is now my favorite trail section on the LVRT... it's so peaceful... I'll be riding it again soon!

Ammonoosuc Rail Trail

Poor condition

September, 2023 by joanhartzler

This trail is not suitable for biking at all. There are very large rocks and in places they dumped sand on the trail. Only rode from Littleton to Lisbon because the riding was so rough. We have hybrid bikes with suspension but we felt like it was way too rough! Never again! Get rid of the ATVs that tear up the trail or market this only to them! ¿

Missisquoi Valley Rail Trail

Good scenic ride June 2023

September, 2023 by richmedcraft

I rode the trail in June 2023 starting in St Albans and went 13 miles out and back. I don't know if the flooding affected the trail since I am not from the area but it was a good ride at that time. The surface is crushed stone and was in good condition and the scenery is mostly farming country. I did see an osprey nesting on the bridge at Swanton. Gentle steady grade the whole time and I was able to keep up a steady pace. I hope the trail is OK now.

Upper Coos Recreational Trail

Liked it MUCH more than we thought we would

August, 2023 by jcenh

We started at the River Walk parking area in Colebrook. We intentionally waited for a nice day in mid-week to try and avoid the possible ATV traffic mentioned in other reviews of the trail. It worked out - we only saw a total of 4 ATVs, with very courteous drivers, and two senior women in a golf cart! No other bikers or walkers were encountered.

The weather could not have been any better. Blue sky, sun, low humidity, and a slight breeze.
The scenery was wonderful. We passed several fields where the farmers were haying. The mountains, river, and other sights were great. We took our time to enjoy the ride going just over 20 miles and taking 3.5 hours from Colebrook to the border and then returning via VT102, like some other riders have done, to experience a different view of the area.

Were the trail conditions great? No. Were the trail conditions bad? No. Our Schwinn hybrid bikes with, us, who are two seniors, did just fine. There were clearly areas that would have not been fun if we had a big rain the day or two before but the 'pot holes' in the trail were dry and we rode right through them. We loved the bridge and dam in West Stewartstown, took lots of pictures, and crossed from NH into VT. We rode right up to the border and then returned to Beecher's Falls. We were sad to see The Local Scoop, a local ice cream shop, was closed that day.

The return ride back on VT102 was fun because of the sights and the very small amount of traffic. Typically, we avoid biking on roads but the 10-mile ride back was fine.

Overall, a wonderful day and a very enjoyable experience!

Lamoille Valley Rail Trail

Love this well maintained trail.

July, 2023 by hogie52

Lots to see on an easy ride with plenty of cool places to stop and eat.
The W. Danville store and Joe's pond as well as many scenic views and parking. The whole trail is now completed except I'm worried about the rain and possible damage. So, I will call the shuttle service in St. J to find out about the access after the recent storm.

Lamoille Valley Rail Trail

Wonderful Trail

July, 2023 by dianewien

What a great trail, and I'm so glad it's finished. We rode 23 miles round-trip yesterday east from Morrisville on the newly opened area and it was just beautiful. Today we rode west from Morrisville to Jeffersonville, also a beautiful ride. The only issue is that there are a few spots just west of Morrisville that are not in good shape; soft sand and/or large, loose gravel. Other than that a fabulous trail. One other thing....on a hot day, make sure to bring lots of water!
