Biking Bennington and Rutland Counties
In remote western Vermont you will find a 19.8-mile
original ballast rail trail that has endpoints in
West Rupert and Castleton. This is a fun trail to
ride because the terrain is so varied. Sometimes
the surface is original ballast, sometimes it's
grass and occasionally it is only a path. But it
is not too rough to ride and goes through beautiful
farmland. We thoroughly enjoyed our day there.

Hudson Rail Trail.
