Final miles of the Lamoille Valley Rail Trail construction will be finished late this fall

The final miles of the Lamoille Valley Rail Trail construction will be finished late this fall with a segment between West Danville and Hardwick wrapping up by Nov. 12, Sen. Joe Benning’s Institutions Committee was told Tuesday. Once complete, the four seasons recreation trail will run 93 miles from St. Johnsbury to Swanton. In addition to providing a smooth, safe surface on which to walk, run or ride (horseback, bicycle or snowmobile) for many miles, the trail is expected to bolster the economies of the towns through which it passes. In the Northeast Kingdom, those towns are Hardwick, Greensboro, Stannard, Walden, Danville and St. Johnsbury.
