Project details

The $3,000 grant will aid the Cross Vermont Trail Association (CVTA) in furthering its goal of connecting villages, schools, and conserved natural areas in Central Vermont.

CVTA is working to build out a network of trails that serve the upper Winooski Valley, from Montpelier to the Groton State Forest, winding through East Montpelier, Plainfield and Marshfield, providing a way for pedestrians and cyclists to conveniently access the outdoors. The basis of the Cross Vermont Trail lies in an old railbed formerly used by the Montpelier & Wells River Railroad, which for many decades was used as an informal public trail.
