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.
Slate Valley Trails (SVT) is a volunteer community group founded in 2015. SVT is a registered non-profit organization and a chapter of the Vermont Mountain Biking Association (VMBA).
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.
