It’s time. Over six years ago, the State of VT decided to create a 92-mile E/W trail across Vermont from Swanton to St. Johnsbury — but we’re still waiting. Senator Sanders secured over $5M of funding for the project years ago. Finally, the first phase of the project should receive its Act 250 permit in the next few months.
Now it’s your turn to lend a hand to finally make this soon-to-be spectacular trail a reality. So what can you do?
1) Get involved: Email the LVRT Board Chair Laird MacDowell and tell him you want to share your time and talent.
2) Write a letter: Write a letter to the editor to your local paper talking up the potential of this project. Click here to send a letter to the Burlington Free Press.
3) Donate: Go to the Lamoille Valley Rail Trail website and make a tax-deductible contribution today!
This trail won’t happen without you. VAST has done a lot of heavy lifting and it is time for non-motorized trail users to join them in constructing this ambitious four-season trail for all Vermonters and many of our visitors to enjoy.
