Nestled in the remote, lake-filled region of northwestern Vermont is the short but scenic Alburgh Recreational Rail-Trail, which runs for 3.5 miles, just a few miles from the Canadian border.
About the Route
Although only 3.5 miles, this short rail trail is unmissable. 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.
Getting to the route can even be half the fun with the scenic route (U.S. Route 2) from Burlington crosses several islands on Lake Champlain and features scenic views of the lake and Aidrondack Mountains of New York.
The Alburgh Recreational Rail Trail runs between Carlyle St. (Alburgh) and Rte. 78 (Alburgh).
Parking is available at Alburgh Lakeshore Park, off Trestle Dr.
