Cross Vermont Bike Trail Professional Guide
Detailed Trail Description from our Guidebook
"This 12.74-mile section of the 90-mile Cross Vermont Trail passes delightful campgrounds and several lakes on its route through peaceful woods. Imagine biking on a smooth, old railroad bed through the peaceful farmland and forests of Vermont, swimming in lakes, eating tasty treats, and camping along the way. This is all possible on the Cross Vermont Trail. This multiuse, 90-mile trail crosses the state from Burlington to Wells River following the peaceful grades of the Winooski and Wells river valleys.
Much of the trail is situated on old railroad beds with an average grade of under 2 percent, which makes it an excellent path for biking, large-wheeled jogging strollers, and wheelchairs alike. This trip covers one particularly scenic 12.75-mile section of the trail from Groton to Marshfield, but you can bike and camp all the way to Burlington for an epic family adventure!
