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.
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.
Rode the “Burlington Greenway” from Oakledge Park. Not a good starting point. We had to deal with detour on city roads. Better starting point is the Burlington Waterfront Park. No where did see a sign for “Island Line Rail Trail”. The trail is along the lake , flat, paved with macadam and shady. You will not be alone on this trail. Many nice views of the lake. The trail turns to a hard dirt/cinder surface about 1.5 miles from the closed causeway reopen date for the causeway is early sept. 2020.a sign for see a sign for
The trail was an easy and serene bike ride, we enjoyed it very much. Definitely recommend if you are in the area.
The causeway is still closed, due to reopen in Sept 2020. Another suggested parking lot is Leddy Park. There is a longish detour from Oakledge Park to the waterfront that is better to avoid.
The Vermont section of the D&H has been repaved from West Rupert to Castleton as of June 2020. This pavement is a combination of stone, cinder, and asphalt. It is beautiful.
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!
These are small, meandering dirt trails that can be best accessed off the bike path. There is no sign to indicate where the trail starts. After Killarney Drive, heading south towards Burlington on the path, just before the small bridge, the path is on the left up a very short incline, then veers to the right or you can go straight. In the spring, there are a multitude of wildflowers. It's a nice alternative to the bike path, which can get crowded in warm weather.
Great trail Along the west river , dogs get plenty of water . About 1.5 h from campground to train station in Londonderry
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.
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.
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.
