Poultney River and Rail Trail
View Connector Trails
The trail loop can be accessed from numerous points, but parking exists near the town center off of Depot St., across from Shaw's.
The Poultney River & Rail Trail exists due to a partnership between the Town of Poultney, multiple landowners, and Slate Valley Trails. The trails are open to hiking, walking, running, mountain biking, and snowshoeing (when the snow falls). The trail loop is very flat and inviting to families.
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.

Leave No Trace Principle
Minimize Campfire Impacts
Consider using a cooking stove and alternative light source (flashlight, candle, lantern) instead of building a campfire.
