Northwest Vermont Rail Trail Council

Volunteer enthusiasm is the hallmark of the Northwest Vermont Rail Trail Council, a non-profit organization that represents communities along the trails, trail users, and local businesses. The Council advises the State on trail issues, assists trail users, and helps make trail improvements. It also raises funds for small maintenance projects and amenities, like benches and picnic tables.

The Council is made up of representatives from the 12 communities through which the MVRT and LVRT passes. As well as State/Regional Partners that support trail operation and funding. The Council holds regular business meetings which are open to the public. They are held on the third Monday of every other month.

If you are interested in potentially joining the council please contact
