Welcome to the Missisquoi Valley Rail Trail!

With its bucolic setting, quiet river nooks, booming mountain views, and quintessential New England villages, the Missisquoi Valley is one of Vermont’s true treasures. The New England Central Rail Line has been connecting the communities of the Missisquoi Valley since 1886— first by train and now by multi-use trail corridor. The 26.4-mile trail wanders through the villages, 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. Interspersed between our historic village centers, you’ll also find the families and working landscapes that created and continue to support this spectacular scenery.
