Getting Here and Around



State Owned Trail

The Missisquoi Valley Rail Trail is owned by the State of Vermont and maintained by the Department of Forest, Parks, and Recreation, the Vermont Agency of Transportation, and countless volunteers. The Northwest Vermont Rail Trail Council advises the State on management and use issues.

Reporting Problems

To report problems along the trail (downed trees, washouts, etc.), call the Vermont Agency of Transportation District 8 at (802) 524-5926.

If you observe violations of the law while on the trail, we urge you to report them to the Vermont State Police by calling (802) 524-5993.

Northwest Vermont Rail Trail Council

Volunteer enthusiasm is the hallmark of the Northwest Vermont Rail Trail Council, a non-profit organization that represents communities along the trail, trail users, and local businesses. The Council advises the State on trail issues, assists trail users, and helps make trail improvements. It also raises funds for small maintenance projects and amenities, like benches and picnic tables.

The Council is made up of representatives from the 9 communities through which the MVRT passes as well as trail users.  The Council holds regular business meetings which are open to the public.  They are held on the third Monday of every other month.  See the dates for this year's Council Meetings and Meeting Minutes, as well as a list of current Council Members.
