Lamoille Valley Rail Trail

Morrisville to Johnson

July, 2021 by bkarhoff

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.

Stowe Recreation Path

Still awesome

July, 2021 by bkarhoff

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.

Island Line Rail Trail

We love in Chattanooga TN and love to travel and bike around America. This is the best trail I've ever been in. It is absolutely stunning. Definitely check it out.

Cross Vermont Trail (Montpelier & Wells River Trail)

Beware of the traffic

July, 2021 by timlord1

According to TrailLink, the Cross Vermont Trail (CVT) extends all the way to Wells River on the east end. Be forewarned, however, that much of the "trail" coincides with Rt. 302, which is a busy east-west highway with a narrow shoulder. We made two attempts to ride the CVT and finally hit the jackpot by parking at State Forest Road at Ricker Mills and riding north from there. That portion of the trail is well groomed (i.e. no ATVs) and the scenery is attractive. If you ride north seven or eight miles from Ricker Mills, you'll be rewarded on the return leg, which is all downhill.

Missisquoi Valley Rail-Trail

It was ok for Countryside views

June, 2021 by geegee6519

The trail is in great condition, along open fields and farms. It’s good for a training workout. The TrailLink app says bathroom at village drive parking. There is no bathrooms and the gravel lots been chained off. However there are few spots for on outside of chain.

Nice trail with some bridges over a stream and access to some restaurants. Tres Amigos is the best!

This trail was on my bucket list and did not disappoint. Since it has different surfaces from Burlington to south hero a hybrid would likely be best. This will always be one of my favorites!

Island Line Rail Trail

perfect for skating (waterfront section)

June, 2021 by saam.rajsky

When I first got my roller skates this was the first outdoor distance skating path I took, and I go back to it all the time! It can be a little crowded on the nicer days, and there is a section just after the cemetery where the pavement is rough for a little bit, but it smooths back out. Be careful if you are on skates the further up you go though— there are a few intersections with traffic that the cars do not have stop signs for! I’ve yet to go all the way, but I always go a little bit farther each time :)

Route 127 Path

A tad bumpy for skating on

June, 2021 by saam.rajsky

I like the location, parking is free and had plenty of space open (Ethan Allen Homestead off of 127). Inline skate friendly? Maybe, bikes certainly.

Lamoille Valley Rail Trail

Lamoille Valley Trail

June, 2021 by mgill7550

On June 1, 2021, we rode our electric bikes from Cambridge to Morrisville, had lunch at Thompson's Flour Shop, and rode back to Cambridge. This is a wonderful trail, with varying terrain, ranging from open farmland to forested sections. The trail runs alongside the Lamoille River most of the way, and if I had had my fly rod with me I would been tempted to test the waters at several points along the trail. Morrisville is a neat little town with a surprisingly large number of restaurants and cafes. The trail is in excellent condition. It crosses Route 15 once or twice, as well as several minor roads, but there was traffic only on 15. On our next trip we'll get off the trail and explore Johnson and Hyde Park.

Lamoille Valley Rail Trail

From Morrisville heading to Cambridge trail is wonderful. . . Morrisville heading South you can go 5.5 miles but it really is not bike ready. . . VERY rough.
