Biking Season in Vermont. Fruitlands Is Here to Help.

We had five guests last night, July 4th. The three fellows in the photo biked here from Newfound Lake in NH. 80+ miles. This morning they left for Enosburg using the Lamoille Valley Rail Trail and Missisquoi Valley Rail Trail. The two ladies in the group are driving the "chase" Toyota and visiting small villages along the way. The bikes were safely tucked away for the night in our garage.

One of the most exciting additions to the northern part of Vermont is the completion of the LVRT, the Lamoille Valley Rail Trail. At 93 miles long, the 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 LVRT provides important connections between recreational trails in Vermont and Canada including more regional trail systems like the VAST snowmobile trail network, Long Trail, Catamount Trail, Velomont, and Missisquoi Valley Rail Trail, as well as local trail connectors like Hardwick Trails, Three Rivers Bike Path, and Cambridge Greenway.

If you are planning a multi-day bike ride, we are now offering a pick up and return (the next day after breakfast) for those who make a reservation at our B&B. We include this service in your room fee. We have two points along the trail where we can meet and return: Joe's Pond in West Danville and Walden Station in Walden. (see map) This will require planning and ETA so that we are ready on our end. We have a four-bike rack on our truck and can put another bike in the bed.

We are avid bikers on the LVRT and are excited to offer you this service. Come and enjoy our part of this incredible countryside.
