Swanton Recreation Path Description

Although only a mile, the Swanton Recreation Path, completed in 2009, offers a scenic gravel pathway that includes a connection to the Swanton History Museum (a rehabilitated train station) and Swanton Elementary School. A highlight of the route is its crossing over the Missisquoi River on a footbridge that dates back to 1902.

This community trail is the westernmost end of a larger trail network, the Lamoille Valley Rail Trail, which will one day stretch more than 90 miles east across Vermont to St. Johnsbury.

Parking and Trail Access

Parking can be found at the Swanton History Museum (58 South River Street) and Swanton Elementary School (24 Fourth Street).
