16 miles are now rail trails. I rode the short but scenic first 3 1/2 mile section out of Brattleboro.
|Trail Head runs through a corn field|
|There is a slight detour up the riverbank hill to avoid construction on the I-91 Bridge...|
|...but most of the rest of the trail is quite scenic|
|Sections run a little further away from the riverbank|
over slight embankments through marshy areas
|The first section ends at this road (ALL TOO SHORT!)|
|Apparently you could continue of this road for a few miles |
to connect with the other section of the rail trail
