Vermont: Foliage Routes

Brattleboro: West River Trail

This is a lovely trail long the West River with continuous views of the vibrant, golden Vermont hills. The southernmost point of the trail starts at the Marina Trailhead, just outside Brattleboro. As the trail continues, it is possible to see hints of where the trail bed was cut out of the rock for the railroad built in 1879, marking its one of Vermont’s oldest transportation routes. The turn around point is when you hit Rice Farm Road. The trail is covered with a soft dirt surface that’s easy on the knees and is relatively flat, making it a quick 3 or 6 mile run!
