Bicycling Magazine highlights Burlington area trails - Check out the Missisquoi Valley Rail Trails

A few years ago I had the chance to ride the Missisquoi Valley Rail Trail from St. Albans, VT to Richford, VT just south of the Canadian border. It is a beautiful trail. Check out my pics.

Welcome to Franklin County, Vermont’s True Treasure. Within the County’s borders lies a wealth of culture, natural resources, and recreation opportunities.Trail Map
Whether you walk, ski, or ride, a trip on the Missisquoi Valley Rail Trail takes you into the heart of Northern Vermont’s agricultural open lands. The Trail wanders through the farms, forests, fields, and wetlands of Franklin County at a railroad’s pace – slow, steady grades with sweeping bends. For the full length of the Trail, you’ll see the postcard images of Vermont you’ve grown to love. You’ll also see the families and working landscapes that created and support this spectacular scenery.
Join the celebration at our fairs, festivals, and parades. There is something to do in every season.
Travel to nearby attractions without packing your bags. Take a train; ride your bicycle; board the bus; paddle a canoe; clip on your skis.
We’re just a short trip from European Montreal, metropolitan Burlington, the beautiful Lake Champlain Islands, Lake Memphremagog, President Chester Arthur Historic Site, and several major ski areas.
