Missisquoi Valley Rail-Trail

Susan, Fullerton, CA.

August, 2019 by mcryans@sbcglobal.net

We rode parts of this trail in Sept. 2018 with a Road Scholar group out of Sutton, Quebec. It was so beautiful and peaceful. I especially enjoyed seeing the maple trees with their tap lines set up. That ride has become one of my mental go to places when I need an escape from everyday reality!

Stowe Recreation Path

Stowe Rec trail

August, 2019 by heykimbers

This is a beautiful trail but it is very narrow unlike Rail to Trails. On a busy weekend day it was a bit frustrating to ride this trail. There are many bridges but they aren't wide enough for bikes going both ways, never mind the walkers. It was also difficult on the bridges to see who was coming the other way so I ended up walking across the 10 bridges after a close collision.

Recommend going during the week when the trail may be quieter. It is a beautiful trail - but there are others in the area that can offer a better riding experience.

Lamoille Valley Rail Trail

Trail is growing a little bit more, and another big trestle has been added

July, 2019 by bobwhite

The Lamoille Valley Railtrail is a wonderful trail. I ride this trail a lot, usually once a week in the summer. I ride the two main sections ST J to West Danville and Morrisville to Cambridge Junction, both about 17 miles long.

There's some good news, this new section is just 1.5 miles long, stretching from the Mississiquoi Rail Trail intersection to Bridge Street in Sheldon, but this short section contains the longest original railroad bridge with great new decking on it. Best for now to ride this section in conjunction with a Mississiquoi trail ride for now.
Hopefully the complete 93 mile Lamoille Valley Railtrail will be totally completed in a few years, along with the existing 26 mile Mississiquoi RT, northern Vermont will offer some great rail-trails!

Millstone Hill West Bike Path

Nice Run

July, 2019 by cbroman

It is a little short at 1.4 miles but a nice trail. If you are a flat lander like me, the hills can be a little bit of a challenge but not bad.

Island Line Rail Trail

Amazing views of Lake Champlain

July, 2019 by godsmelissa

This trail was amazingly beautiful. My family and I kept stopping to take in the scenery. The nice volunteer at the ferry on the end stated it was 4miles from Airport Park- where we started to the end where you catch the bike ferry- for a nominal cost, which we chose not to as it was only 1 more paved mile on south hero island then all road- we had children in a trailer and it wasn’t for us to continue. Some spots on the trail had good washout and was marked w/ caution cones and even some areas were one way accessible at a time to opposing traffic. Everyone we encountered were all courteous to this and we had no issues in waiting or riding on. There was some hills leaving Airport Park and a marked rd crossing but again no issues. As well it was packed dirt and some grass areas. This trail is heavily traveled with foot traffic as well and many ppl walking dogs too. Well worth a visit. The playground at airport park was fun and the bathrooms were open too so that was good. Our trip was the second weekend in June. The weather had a nice breeze and sun all day but in that area it is still considered out of season till end of June

Niquette Bay State Park - Allen Trail

Accessibility of Allen Trail

June, 2019 by cari4

My daughter, who uses a power scooter, and I decided to check out how accessible Niquette Bay State Park is yesterday. First, we were greeted warmly and mentioned that we were looking to use their accessible trails. We were told that there was really only one trail that we could access, which was the Allen Trail. It is about a half-mile long and is a beautiful setting. It doesn't take long and little effort to be one with nature for a while. I recommend this trail if you are looking for a nice stroll in the woods. You cannot get to the water from any trail in this park if you are looking to do so from the accessible trail. It is a beautiful park and you could bring a picnic lunch and eat at their picnic tables. Enjoy!!

Island Line Rail Trail

Island Line Trail via a loop ride

June, 2019 by sschwinn

I rode the trail last weekend via a loop utilizing routes 2 and 127. I parked in Niquette Bay State Park and rode a clockwise loop, meeting the trail at Leddy Park- about 35 miles in all.
The paved portion of the trail north of Burlington is excellent and suitable for any bike type.
The causeway is a wonderful ride but due to loose stone and gravel not suitable for a road bike. I struggled in parts on my cyclocross bike. It can be especially tricky when there are wobbly riders coming in the other direction as the causeway can be pretty narrow in spots.
The ferry operates Friday- Sunday at this time of year (check the website) and was $8 for a one way trip.
I intended to check out Sand Bar State Park on the way back but it was closed due to high water in Lake Champlain!

Island Line Rail Trail

Absolutely the best

June, 2019 by yiwang100

This is the most beautiful and unique trail in the world. The conditions are perfect for biking as well as walking. The short ferry ride only adds its charming. I just cannot say more how much I like it. Don't miss it.

Hoot, Toot and Whistle Trail

Overall it was pretty good. Not something i would take a bicycle on, very uneven narrow trails. However it is an enjoyable walk which can be traversed by almost anyone.

Missisquoi Valley Rail-Trail

Historic Trail

January, 2019 by smithvt1

I live in Sheldon on the trail and walk it most every day. It is not only a natural wonder it is also an historic wonder with many signs of Sheldon's past along the trail. Perhaps we will be able to mark some of those or map them out for your convenience.

Missisquoi Valley Rail-Trail

Lovely fall ride, trees just beginning to turn

September, 2018 by dan.liz

Rode from St. Albany to West Berkshire and back. Only food and restroom facilities along the trail were at a gas station and convenience store in Enosberg. Friendly staff. Next time we'll bring our own lunch. Views of the river were spectacular. A beautiful, peaceful and satisfying ride.

Missisquoi Valley Rail-Trail

A perfect trail

September, 2018 by robert.richter89

I rode the entire trail starting in St. Albans and ending at Richford for a total of roughly 26.5 miles each way. The entire trail is well marked and is in near perfect condition. The trail is overall flat but there are sections that do have a grade to them which caught me by surprise going up and then coasting down them. The scenery varies from forest to rural farmland with Enosburg acting as a halfway point for refreshments.

There are a good amount of road crossings but the trail is always easy to find and I found that most of the crossings had very little to no traffic on them even on Labor Day Weekend. There are sections of this trail that do not offer much shade which may pose a problem on a very hot day. Overall I think this trail offers the perfect combination of scenery, ease of riding and a trail that is in very good condition.
