Presidential Rail Trail

Rough for the first 8 miles...

September, 2021 by bill.mason7680

I started at the western trailhead. The surface for the first four miles is large diameter crushed stone. The same stone used in the trailhead parking lot. It's not the kind of crushed stone you put on a multi use recreation trail. The next four miles was basically rough single track. I rode my gravel bike based on the (lackluster) description above. I jumped off at 8 miles and returned to my car on back roads. The crushed stone listed on the surface description is very misleading. This would be fine with a mountain bike. Front suspension would be best.

Mountain Division Trail

Beautiful day for an easy ride

September, 2021 by nikoniko

We parked at the Windham PO and rode along the tracks until we got to Rt-35, did a bit of exploring at the Otter Ponds, then came back. It was a sweet ride: no bugs, great Sharon weather—we were a little disappointed that we couldn’t go directly to the Lake, but I see now we could have gone left and gotten to the water…. Next time. We stopped at the Orchard Ridge Farm and had a delicious cider donut at the intersection with Sebago Lakes Rd. ~10

Lamoille Valley Rail Trail

Beautiful ride from Jeffersonville to Morrisville

September, 2021 by kellywheeler

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.

Lamoille Valley Rail Trail

Great Trail; Cambridge Junction Greenway Weak

August, 2021 by aabernhard

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.

Cotton Valley Rail-Trail

Fun ride in the woods!

August, 2021 by demcvane

This trail is for mountain or hybrid bikes, definitely not road bikes.
Agree with others in that there are more pedestrians near Wolfboro but the trail gets much less traveled the farther away you go.
Also agree that the trails are narrow but this is not an issue because the visibility is so good. Most of the time, you can see people coming from other direction literally hundreds a feet ahead of time. I did get stuck behind a few slower bikers but was able to pass at one of the railroad track crossovers.
As the railroad track crossovers, you just have to slow down and ensure your front tire is crossing at a 90 degree angle. I didn’t have any issues at all but just be mindful, slow down and steer the front tire to cross over perpendicular to the rail.
So, definitely some things to consider and manage but well worth it in my opinion.

Bobby Woodman Rail Trail

Trail in good shape

August, 2021 by jcenh

The trail was in good shape. Unfortunately there wasn't much to see. The highlight was the trestle over the Sugar River. The place where the trail 'parallels Washington Street' was busy and care was needed because many cars were entering the shopping area.

Since the trail was short, we continued on the Sugar River trail. There was a fair amount of working being done on it and it was not as nice as it was one year ago. Sand was being added in places which made it more difficult to ride through. Overall, however, we'd recommend the Sugar River trail west side and make sure you see at least one of the two train covered bridges!

Lamoille Valley Rail Trail

Swanton to Sheldon Jct

August, 2021 by donaldhuffman_tl

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!

Another Vote for "Not Safe for Bikes"....and We Biked It

August, 2021 by tribe_fan

As many others have noted, this trail is not safe for bikes, especially road and hybrid models. We read the reviews warning us in advance and rode wide tire bikes. Despite rubber mats at many of the points where you transition from between the rails to beside them or vice versa, it's still possible to get a tire caught in the small gap between the mat and the rails and take a fall. Be forewarned to SLOW DOWN or walk your bike across these numerous transition points. Also, the sections of the trail that run between the rails are too narrow for a bike going one way to safely pass a walker going the other. When it's two bikes going in opposite directions, one has to come to a stop to pass safely. The sections of the trail outside the rails aren't much wider and the railroad ties extend about six inches beyond the rails, further squeezing the available space. My conclusion is that there must be hundreds of single bike, bike-bike and bike-pedestrian accidents annually.

The trail is otherwise quite nice. Its almost totally flat and there's plenty of shade.

Cotton Valley Rail-Trail

Know how to cross railroad rails safely

August, 2021 by nphillips_tl

This is a very scenic path traveling through woods most of the time, along marshes, hidden ponds and across Lake Wentworth. But this path has railroad tracks along the whole path, which makes the trail narrow in most places. BUT - be warned -
this trail will not be as enjoyable for some. Others will be fine with the challenges.
1. Learn how to travel safely across steel rails, since you will have to do this at least two dozen times, often within a tight narrow space. If you do not cross as close to 90 degrees to the rail, you risk you bike tire slipping out from under you. How do you I know? There are some short videos on You Tube that address this.
2. From the Wakefield end, park at the lot near the Miss Wakefield diner, so you don't have to cross Route 16, a very busy road.
3. The closer you get to Wolfboro, there are more pedestrians, and some think their right of way is the whole path, not half. I would end the trip at route 109A where the railcar rides are located, unless you really want to go to Wolfboro.
4. I found passing others on the trail that were coming the other way could be stressful, since there is little room to move over. One or both of you will have a hard rail on one side of you and if not, then the edge of the path often dropped off.
5. At the beginning of the trail at Route 16 you do have a couple of short steep ups and downs. Otherwise the trail is fairly flat.

Lamoille Valley Rail Trail

First e- bike ride

August, 2021 by lindarkv

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.

Sugar River Trail

Sugar River Rail Trail!

August, 2021 by jsolon3680

With touring version of an e-bike, found this trail to be interesting, historic, and fun! Yes, there are some spots with sand, but if one rides smart, no issue. Did not run into any of the ATV’s mentioned in the other reviews. Loved all of the River crossings, as well as the two covered bridges! Loved the white tailed deer seen on the route as well!

Trestle Trail

Trestle Trail is not a bicycle trail

August, 2021 by yikesmon_tl

This trail is a footpath not suitable for even Mt bikes. The bridge was washed away 3 years ago and one must ford the Zealand River on foot.
