Stowe Recreation Path

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

Island Line Rail Trail

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.

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.

Delaware and Hudson Rail-Trail

Too Rough for Hybrids

May, 2021 by jimbo22

the small stone surface on top of rough tar results in constant vibration and absorbs energy making travel difficult. A local indicated the trail was completed last year - it is clear they have no concept of how to make a bike trail.

Delaware and Hudson Rail-Trail

very rough ride

April, 2021 by rbjpye

As mentioned by others this HAS been a great trail.
Currently the trail is in very rough shape due to horse traffic. The type of material used last year to resurface the trail is great for walking and wheeled traffic but is damaged when horses are ridden at a gallop.
Recent attempt to ride resulted in my wife and I leaving the trail and finding a paved road to ride back on rather than endure the constant pounding.
I am trying to contact Vermont Dept of Forest ,Parks, and Rec about this but so far have had no luck getting a response.
I will update this review if new info comes or if the status of the trail surface changes,

Island Line Rail Trail

Open but ferry wasn’t operating

Started the trail at the S. Hero end and the little ferry wasn’t operating yet but still a lovely walk

Delaware and Hudson Rail-Trail

Poultney to Castleton

September, 2020 by gjzambetti_tl

Wonderful trail. Nine miles of crushed stone and hard pack dirt from southern end to Castleton University parking lot. I would not use a thin tire road bike. Beware: the southern end is a dead end 2 miles from Poultney and does not have a parking lot as indicated on the trail map. You must park in Poultney in a well marked lot off of Bentley Ave.

Lamoille Valley Rail Trail

Enjoyable ride

August, 2020 by ccoker

Rode from Morrisville to Cambridge Junction and back. Enjoyable ride that follows the river and meanders through corn and forests. Be sure to check out the falls. Stopped at Lost Nation Brewery at the end to rehydrate¿¿

Beebe Spur Rail Trail

Short, but sweet.

August, 2020 by bill.mason7680

The trail is in very good condition with one exception. The last mile heading north has been reduced to two narrow single tracks. It needs resurfacing before nature totally reclaims it. That being said, it's still smooth and easy to ride. There are lots of openings in the trees along the trail with beautiful views of the lake and mountains. Ample designated trail parking at the hospital next door. It was a nice end to a day spent in the general Newport/Derby area.
