The Castleton University Trails can be accessed from the D&H Rail Trail that starts in Castleton, VT. There is parking at the start of the Rail Trail on Main St. in Castleton, or in the parking lot just north and east of the Rail Trail as it crosses South St. on the Castleton University campus.
The Castleton University Trails exist due to a partnership between the University, the Town of Castleton, and Slate Valley Trails. The trails are open to hiking, walking, running, mountain biking, and snowshoeing (when the snow falls). Some folks cross-country ski on these trails, but it is generally not groomed for skiing.
The SVT mission is to build, maintain and promote foot and bicycling trails in the Slate Valley region of southwestern Vermont.
Our goals are to:
1) Build community among local individuals, organizations and businesses.
2) Support the local economy by promoting the region as a place to visit, with improved access to trails.
3) Encourage the positive health benefits of being active outdoors.
These trails are managed by Slate Valley Trails. Any comments, questions or concerns can be directed to SVT.
