Rails to Rails Moves Forward

Travelers May Enjoy The Connect

Here, in the Northeast Kingdom of Vermont, green goes mobile as the Lamoille Valley Rail Trail extends its reach from St. Johnsbury to Danville, VT. 

A project designed to revitalize the economy by way of recycling an existing rail trail into a four season tourist trek for hikers, bikers, horseback riders, snowmobilers, cross country skiers and the like, is picking up steam.

The Lamoille Valley Rail Trail organization oversees this effort and the combined work of the VAST organization and VT Transit Authority who made this project possible.

This October 11th a 75 foot bridge was lowered over Vernon St. in St. Johnsbury that connects the town to West Danville via trail. 

The trail is currently available to non motorized travelers who may walk, bike or horseback ride its .4 gradient elevation south to West Danville. Those who enjoy a long walk might appreciate the trail's modest slope that will encompass most of its length.

This winter, snowmobilers, cross country skiers and snow shoe-ers may travail this path for the first time.

In west Danville, another bridge is expected to be completed this month. This spring, the work will continue its reach towards Hardwick, VT.

Construction began this spring with these two bridges, as the LVRT received its ACT 250 permit for the first phase of this three phase project. 


The project, when completed, will allow a 93.2 mile trek from St. Johnsbury to Swanton, VT. It’s $9.5 million cost is funded, in part, by the VAST Organization and a 5.2 million Federal grant with supporters covering 20%.


The project is expected to bring business to towns and businesses via the connect as travelers will enjoy the hotels, inns and restaurants along the way.

This effort is a part of a country wide effort to revitalize regions by way of existing rail trails no longer in use.
