Montpelier Recreation Path (Winooski Path) Description

The Montpelier Recreation Path, which follows the Winooski River in downtown Montpelier, is currently divided into two paved pathways: Winooski West and Winooski East on either side of the North Branch River and Main Street. Collectively, they're part of the Central Vermont Path, a proposed multi-town trail network from Montpelier to Graniteville, which is part of the larger Cross Vermont Trail.

The western segment begins in the Dog River Recreation Area, a perfect place for a picnic with tables and grills near the water. It continues for just over a mile to end at Taylor Street. Along the way, it passes Montpelier High School, providing a safe off-road travel route for students. The eastern segment is smaller, only about a half-mile, from the Montpelier Recreation Center to Granite Street.

Parking and Trail Access

Parking is available at Montpelier High School (5 High School Drive) and the Montpelier Recreation Center (55 Barre Street).
