St. Johnsbury was named "the best small town for outdoor adventure" by National Geographic, and you'll find adventures here for every taste and ability. Scroll down for listings of outdoor & indoor recreational amenities, guides & services, and wellness opportunities.
Summer Trailhead: 195 Bay St.
Winter Trailhead: 534 Main St.
St. Johnsbury is the beginning (or end!) of the four-season, multi-purpose Lamoille Valley Rail Trail, which passes through northern Vermont's woods and farmlands and is perfect for walking, hiking, cycling, horseback riding, snowshoeing, x-c skiing, and snowmobiling. The entire 93 mile length of the trail will be completed in 2023, and an in-town extension will bring the trail right into the downtown in 2024!
