Great local resource

Love running and walking on this trail with the family. Great resource that seems underused. Trail is usually not very crowded. Good for walking, strollers, bikes.

Love this trail. It is not too busy. The surface is packed crushed stone, so will need thicker bike tires than used on the road. Views are beautiful. I have ridden the whole length of the trail at different times. The first 3 miles are pretty flat -- the next 6 are more hilly and remote (woodsy). If want to... More

We rode in mid September and temps were comfortable. Keep in mind that stone dust trail requires more effort than pavement. Starting from Rte. 105 and Kane Rd. intersection, we went to Richford and back. Took advice of others and stopped at Devyn's Creemee stand in Enosburg Falls. Huge serving by Amy! She was super friendly and sweet. Richford eating... More

I traveled this trail in August and it was a horrible experience. To be honest, it largely had to do with the fact that the trail is uncovered by trees for the majority of the distance and we baked while we were on it despite extensive sunscreen usage. Additionally there were no places to stop along the way to gain... More

This wide well kept bike path wends its way amid farm fields along the Mississquoi River in beautiful Vermont. The road crossings are well marked. Along the way there are a few places to eat or have an ice cream especially when one gets to a town. Mostly level and easy terrain.

The Missisiquoi Valley Rail Trail begins in St. Albans and continues to Richford, Vermont. It's a great place to walk, bike, and ski and, while well used, is rarely crowded. The St. Albans section is especially lovely in early spring when the trillium bloom.

I recently took my mountain bike up on the Missisquoi Valley Rail Trail to enjoy some pedaling fun in Vermont's winter sunshine without concern for snow plows and cars. Such a great year-round resource.

This is a wonderful place to bike or walk. It's flat and the views go on forever. Since it is out in the open, it can get very hot, so be sure to bring sun protection. Same is true for rain gear. There are few places to hide.

This trail runs from st. albans to Richford, is very flat since it's a former railroad bed, and is finished with a sand-stone surface. It needs some maintenance in places but is still a very nice alternative for hiking or biking on highways, Grass is growing in on the sides because of a lack of timely maintenance. Very well used...

if you are biking, jogging or just going for a nice long walk, this is a great way to get exercise and enjoy the view between St.Albans and Enosburg. I have walked from Sheldon Springs to Enosburg as my son rode his bike and it was wonderful. The Missquoi River and the view of Jay Peak as well as Mount... More
