Description

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.
