Lamoille Valley Rail Trail Across Northern Vermont is
New England’s Longest Rail Trail

At 93 miles long, the Lamoille Valley Rail Trail (LVRT) is the longest rail trail in New England and connects 18 towns from St. Johnsbury to Swanton.

The LVRT is a four-season, multi-purpose recreation and transportation corridor for walking, hiking, cycling, horseback riding, snowshoeing, cross country skiing, dogsledding, and snowmobiling.

The trail runs right through Lamoille County, including the towns of Wolcott, Morrisville, Hyde Park, Johnson and Jeffersonville and Cambridge.

Lamoille County Parking Information

Where do I park?

The LVRT crosses state and local highways in many places, but most intersections do not provide adequate room for safe parking or sight lines at road crossings. Trail users should access the trail only at designated trailheads, which are located throughout the LVRT corridor.

These the Lamoille County’s Public parking and trail access locations:


The LVRT sustained serious damage during the July 2023 flooding, and the middle segment remains closed as crews actively work to rebuild the trail. AOT will reopen an additional 23.2 miles of that middle section this Saturday, September 15th, 2023 at 7 a.m.

At that time, the LVRT will be fully open from Swanton to Wolcott and from Walden to St. Johnsbury. The 21.1 miles from Wolcott to Walden will remain closed to the public, and active construction will continue.
