The Lamoille Valley Rail Trail is a historic treasure extending across some of Northern Vermont’s most beautiful landscapes. The 93-mile trail spans the breadth of Northern Vermont from the Connecticut River Valley to within two miles of Lake Champlain. The LVRT is a four-season, multi-purpose recreation and transportation corridor for walking, hiking, cycling, horseback riding, snowshoeing, cross country skiing, and snowmobiling. After two decades of research, planning and construction, 33 miles have been opened. The entire Trail is scheduled to be complete and open in early 2023. The maps below provide information on the open trail segments and active construction areas. Additional information on parking and other facilities can also be found in the maps below.
