Description

This trail is a lovely walk along the Lamoille River and offers a wonderful variety of plants, flowers, and wildlife. The lower Lamoille River is the last stretch of an 85-mile waterway that flows west into Lake Champlain. At the east end of the trail you can see the first dam that was built on the lower Lamoille. The beginning of the trail also offers a unique foot bridge. This area is also popular for fishing.

Roughly half of this trail is on property that was retained by the Town of Milton through open space set aside from Checkerberry developments. The other half is on Green Mountain Power (GMP) land provided through a license agreement.
