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.
