The evolution of bike routes, paths and rail-trails is enabling new ways for you to enjoy the sights and gorgeous landscape of Vermont. The routes that railroads historically took across Vermont followed scenic rivers, and our bike tour features miles of riding along the Winooski, Wells, Lamoille, Passumpsic and Missisquoi rivers.
Join us for a route that features two days on the Cross Vermont Trail, from Lake Champlain to the Connecticut River, traversing the state from west to east. Your return is along pieces of several trails, including the Lamoille Rail Trail and the Missisquoi Rail Trail. The final day of the tour features a ride over the causeway to Lake Champlain’s islands on the Island Line Rail Trail. Experience the beauty of northern Vermont on quiet rail-trail grades, with additional options to add miles on back roads.
