Stowe Recreation Path

One of our favorites

February, 2017 by jadajudy

We have been riding this with our grandkids for 10+ years. Now they are in high school. Enjoy the ride, the beaches along the river, restaurants and shops along the way. You can ride it up and back in an hour, or make stops and enjoy for the day.

Burlington Bike Path Detour

December, 2016 by mgrimmvt

There is a Bike Path Rehabilitation project currently under way. As of this writing (December 1, 2016), the Burlington Bike Path is closed to ALL traffic from the Skatepark to North Beach. The detour is pretty well marked.

From the south, detour using Depot St. to North Avenue. From the north, use Institute Road to North Avenue.

See http://enjoyburlington.com/burlington-greenway-project/ for latest update and a map of the detour.

Lamoille Valley Rail Trail

Geocaching Along the LVRT

November, 2016 by movillesmiths

There are two great geocache series on the east end of the tail. Beginning near Joe's Pond and ending near GoodFella's Restaurant is the Vermont Star with 50 caches. Picking up there is the Maple Leaf which continues on to St. Jay with 40 caches. To obtain the correct coordinates of the caches you must answer questions about VT and maple sugaring. When we did the star, we did it in two segments and I rode back on the slightly uphill trail with no problems to get the truck. When we did the leaf, we left one vehicle in St. Jay so as not to have to ride back. Bodda rides an older, single-speed tricycle and had no problems on the trail. Though we live in Morrisville, we have only tried one short segment of the trail there but have heard great things about it and want to try it soon. It is hard to imagine the work that went into cutting through the ledges and filling the gullies. When you drive routes 15 and 2, it's hard to believe how hilly they are but just a short distance away is the almost level rail trail. Gramp

Missisquoi Valley Rail-Trail

Disappointing

October, 2016 by city biker

Last weekend, my friends and I biked the trail from St. Albans. Except for a pizza restaurant, there were no services/portapotties at the Sheldon parking lot area as indicated on a local map of the trail. Because of the weather forecast we only went 15 miles North on the trail. The crushed gravel really slowed us down to about 7-8 mph. Though I had the appropriate tires, And I'm no speed demon, I don't like to ride that slowly. All said, What I saw was pretty, and I would be willing to bike this trail again from Richford. The southern leg of this ride was underwhelming.

Missisquoi Valley Rail-Trail

What a gem

September, 2016 by suzann.erben

We did not think it is a boring trail, as another reviewer wrote. So much to see of the Vermont countryside!

Island Line Rail Trail

Wonderful trail and experience

September, 2016 by dangray

This trail is amazing with beautiful scenery along the way. I rode the trail just before labor day and the weather was perfect. I started in Burlington and went to the Island and explored for a couple of hours. The small ferry connecting the causeway was quick and easy and the crew friendly.

Alburg Recreational Rail-Trail

Rough!

September, 2016 by kegs260_tl

Found this trail by accident today. Road it most if the way, east/west. Trail has not been maintained as compared to pictures shown. Rideable but very, very over-grown. Very few clear markers. It's like it's almost hidden and forgotten. Shame!

Lamoille Valley Rail Trail

Beautiful Cambridge Jct to Morrisville

August, 2016 by alanw.belcher

I rode Cambridge Jct to Hyde Park & return one day, then Morrisville to Hyde Park another. The parking area in Cambridge Jct is very nice. There's a nice shelter with portapotty and even a train theme picnic area adjacent. Smuggler's Notch Ski Area has done a lot to improve this spot this summer (carpenters were working on the train the day I was there).

The trail from there to Johnson is pretty much level, with a few small/short grades, the trail is crushed granite hard-pack. The town road crews maintain the trails in their municipality, and some cut the brush more often. Sometimes the grass & weeds will whack your shins as you ride, but the tree limbs had been kept off the trail. You ride along the river, through fields of fodder and forested areas.

Johnson has a beautiful kiosk with water and a portapotty, and downtown is just a half mile away, down Depot St. From there to Hyde Park is more fields, forests, river and a beautiful through truss bridge.

Hyde Park to Morrisville is mainly uphill. If you go east to west it's a leisurely ride. This section is mainly wooded, with high fills down to the river in places. The Lamoille River is always nearby. You also cross quite a few roads, and the through truss bridge in Morrisville.

Just west of Morrisville village you pass right behind the Lost Nation brewery, and many trail users stop to sample their creations. The depot in Morrisville is a restaurant as well. And about 1/4 mile south of the depot is a bike shop if you need any supplies. Parking in Morrisville is adjacent to the depot.

I went a short distance east of Morrisville, even down the unimproved section. Not sure how far you can go, but I do know there are a couple of bridges removed. The trail is railroad ballast, with tall grass/weeds.

Toonerville Rail-Trail

ok but not great

August, 2016 by andrewhelan

Directions to the Hoyt's Landing traihead are poor. Should say, "small sign on the Vermont side, just before you cross the Connecticut River into New Hampshire."
This trail is nicely paved, but too industrial and too many cars for our taste. Vermont is late to the casual biking game and doesn't seem to place much if any emphasis on it. Happily, New Hampshire is just the opposite (figuratively and literally.) Many fine trails in New Hampshire. Vermont: Get with It.

Joes Pond to St Johnsbury

August, 2016 by youker

This is a wonderful downhill trail especially if your wife will drive shuttle. I was able to do much of it in higher gears. Joes Pond is a hydro project and it is interesting to see the height of the dam in the little town of West Danbury. Great old country store across the road from the ample parking area for the trail in town. Youker
