The D&H Rail Trail encompasses two sections of the former Delaware and Hudson Railroad that are in Vermont. These two sections are separate by a space of several miles where the old rail line crossed back into New York and then back again through Vermont.
The D&H Rail Trail is a multiple-use trail open to pedestrians, bicyclists and horseback riders in the summer and snowshoers, skiers and snowmobilers during the winter. The trail includes 17 wooden-decked bridges with 5-foot railings. The trail tread consists of the original cinder rail bed ballast and stone.
A PDF map and guide to the D&H Rail Trail is available on the VT Department of Forests, Parks and Recreation website.
