About D & H Rail Trail
The D & H Rail Trail is a multiple-use trail open to pedestrians, bicyclists, and horse riders in the summer and snowshoers, skiers, and snowmobilers during the winter. Snowmobiling is the only authorized motorized use of the trail; state registration and VAST membership requirements must be followed when operating on the trail. The trail has a speed limit of 35 mph.

The trail includes 17 wooden-decked bridges of various lengths. The bridges have 5-foot high railings and are constructed to provide a smooth travel way. The trail tread consists of the original cinder rail bed ballast, gravel, and stone. In some places, the cinder sections can be soft and may pose a challenge to road bicycles. The trail is better suited to hybrid and mountain bikes. For foot travel, the trail is well suited to people of all ages and abilities due to its wide, level, and stable base.

The D & H Rail Trail encompasses the trail sections only in Vermont. Even though the original rail line extended into New York, and weaved back and forth between the two states several times, some sections of trail in New York have reverted back to private ownership and are not open to public use. Please respect private property in both New York and Vermont, and access the trail only at the designated trailheads.
