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.

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).

Missisquoi Valley Rail-Trail

Susan, Fullerton, CA.

August, 2019 by mcryans@sbcglobal.net

We rode parts of this trail in Sept. 2018 with a Road Scholar group out of Sutton, Quebec. It was so beautiful and peaceful. I especially enjoyed seeing the maple trees with their tap lines set up. That ride has become one of my mental go to places when I need an escape from everyday reality!

Stowe Recreation Path

Stowe Rec trail

August, 2019 by heykimbers

This is a beautiful trail but it is very narrow unlike Rail to Trails. On a busy weekend day it was a bit frustrating to ride this trail. There are many bridges but they aren't wide enough for bikes going both ways, never mind the walkers. It was also difficult on the bridges to see who was coming the other way so I ended up walking across the 10 bridges after a close collision.

Recommend going during the week when the trail may be quieter. It is a beautiful trail - but there are others in the area that can offer a better riding experience.

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!

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.

Missisquoi Valley Rail-Trail

Historic Trail

January, 2019 by smithvt1

I live in Sheldon on the trail and walk it most every day. It is not only a natural wonder it is also an historic wonder with many signs of Sheldon's past along the trail. Perhaps we will be able to mark some of those or map them out for your convenience.

Missisquoi Valley Rail-Trail

Lovely fall ride, trees just beginning to turn

September, 2018 by dan.liz

Rode from St. Albany to West Berkshire and back. Only food and restroom facilities along the trail were at a gas station and convenience store in Enosberg. Friendly staff. Next time we'll bring our own lunch. Views of the river were spectacular. A beautiful, peaceful and satisfying ride.
