Stowe Recreation Path

Great Bike Path

August, 2022 by dave99nh

I love this bike path. Come often. Nicely paved and kept in excellent condition

Lamoille Valley Rail Trail

Parking in St Albins

August, 2022 by aabernhard

Great trail.

Only need to know that the sign in St.Albans telling you to park on the trail means just that. The first 200' of the Trail are its parking lot in St. Albans.

For those of us who have said all our lives "never park on the trail" we need to learn new tricks.

Delaware and Hudson Rail-Trail

Castleton to Poultney fun ride

June, 2022 by vtpredom

We were pleasantly surprised with how nice this trail is based on some of the reviews. We ride hybrid bikes with shocks and comfort seats and are accustomed to riding gravel and backroads so this trail was just what we look for. Trail is firm packed gravel and very smooth, no potholes or washboard experienced on our ride. Plenty of parking available on the Castleton end of the trail, we parked in the trailhead lot across from the Amtrak station. Definitely in our top 10 list of VT rides.


Delaware and Hudson Rail-Trail

Carleton to Poultney section somewhat better but still rough due to horse traffic.

Montpelier Recreation Path (Winooski Path)

pleasant unexpected ride

June, 2022 by richmedcraft

I was traveling through Montpelier on Rt 2 along the river after being unable to find another trail several miles away. I saw signs for the Cross Vermont Trail and saw what looked like a trail across the river. I kept a lookout for other signs and followed one to a dirt road that extended along the north bank of the river. I parked there and rode my bike along what is apparently an extension of the Montpelier Recreation Path that is not described yet in Trail Link. The surface is crushed stone for the most part and I followed it until it ended in a narrow dirt path blocked by a large piece of old equipment. I then backtracked and followed the trail into Montpelier where it became paved and passed across streets and railroad tracks. I turned around in the downtown and rode back to the car for a total of about 7 miles. It was a pleasant ride and the scenery outside of the city was nice.

Lamoille Valley Rail Trail

great rail trail experience

June, 2022 by richmedcraft

This ride was what I think of when I think of rail trail biking. A trail with only mild changes in elevation, good surface (not paved necessarily) and good scenery. I started at the Morrisville trailhead and headed west for 10 miles before returning to where I had parked. There was not much traffic on the trail (mid morning in mid June) and the weather was great. The trail was in good shape- the crushed stone and dirt surfaces did not show any ill effects from recent storms. The scenery was nice- mostly forested stream banks and agricultural fields. My hybrid bike with road tires did fine on this trail. The parking area in Morrisville came up on my i-phone GPS so it was easy to find.

Niquette Bay State Park - Allen Trail

Choice of hikes

May, 2022 by lamcdavidvt

This was my first hike of the season so I wasn’t looking for a really difficult one. This is medium, only because there are sections with steps you have to go up. But a very nice hike and good views of Lake Champlain.

Island Line Rail Trail

A must ride

May, 2022 by ashbaugh4220

Wife and I love this ride!

Montpelier Recreation Path (Winooski Path)

Wonderful Bike and Foot Trail through our capital city!

November, 2021 by lsnow1

I’ve used this trail dozens of times, biking, walking and jogging in and around Montpelier. And now it’s expanded! I assume the TrailLink map will be updated to show it, but between Taylor and Main streets is connected, and the trail extends east all the way to Gallison Hill Road.

West River Trail

Jamaica base trail

October, 2021 by drkateklemer

the first 2 miles were gorgeous and great rail trail packed gravel. After that we stopped at the base of a narrow rocky hill. The Brattleboro portion was great, 4 miles each way. I may go north sometime and try the top on down. I have an e bike with no shock forks/ trek verve 3. So not a mountain bike per se…

Island Line Rail Trail

Splendid Vermont Experience

October, 2021 by creischl

Rode the trail on a wet and windy Sunday morning--only a few hearty walkers sharing it with us. Several loons eyed us as we rode the causeway out into the middle of the lake--such fun! We started out by Lake Champlain and rode the trail out to the break and then rode into town and back. The trail is well-maintained and very well-marked. A unique ride!

Island Line Rail Trail

Scenic, peaceful trail

September, 2021 by gbardy10

We biked this trail on a cloudy fall day, but it was still beautiful. It’s perfectly maintained with stunning view of Lake Champlain. The trail is diverse, winding past the town waterfront, parks, beaches, neighborhoods, sheltered beaches, marshes with wading birds and a causeway across the lake. Unfortunately the bike ferry was closed as it’s only open in weekends in the fall. A great way to spend an afternoon.
