The Cross Vermont Trail is a project to build a multi-use, four season path across the width of Vermont; following the Winooski River and Wells River valleys.
The trail is connecting together communities, their schools, and the natural areas between. You can help! The Cross Vermont Trail Association is an incorporated, private non-profit, member based and volunteer driven. Everyone is welcome to join.
Along the Cross Vermont Trail:
Join us Saturday for our annual Fall Foliage bike ride and cookout on the Cross Vt Trail.
Sat Sept 24 - 19th annual fall ride. Celebrate the railtrail from Groton to Wells River. Meet 9:30 AM at Kettle Pond trailhead, in Groton State Forest off of Rte 232. We'll ride down the trail to the Wells River Conservation Area and Blue Mt Union School, where we will enjoy a big cookout.
We're getting the Cross Vermont Trail off the shoulder of Rte 2 and onto a path in the woods - in East Montpelier.

The guide is written in part by local middle and high school students. We'd like to work with more classes to continue to improve and expand it.
