Nestled in the remote, lake-filled region of northwestern Vermontjust a few miles from the Canadian borderis the short and easy-to-overlook Alburg Recreational Rail-Trail.
But you won't want to miss this 3.5-mile trail. It is a birder's paradise, with Mud Creek Waterfowl Area on the western end of the trail and the Missisquoi National Wildlife Refuge a few miles east of the eastern endpoint. And, getting to this trail can be half the fun, especially if you take the scenic route (U.S. Route 2) from Burlington that hops you from island to island within Lake Champlain.
To get to the trail, take U.S. Route 2 north two miles from State Route 78 into the small town of Alburg. As you enter the town, you will pass the municipal building on the left. Directly across from the Alburg Fire Station, turn right (the only way you can turn) onto Industrial Park Drive. This road ends in a circle, once occupied by a railroad roundhouse. The trail begins left of the circle's center. You can park around the circle or somewhere on the streets in Alburg.
