FOLIAGE ADVENTURE TOUR (SELF GUIDED)

($60) plus tax Half day (4 hr) 

($75) plus tax Full day (7 hr) 

Leaf peep in a whole new way! Lamoille Valley Bike Tours invites you to step out of your car and onto an electric bike to view the spectacular beauty of Vermont’s foliage up close and personal with a self guided E-bike adventure on the Lamoille Valley Rail Trail.  This 17 mile car-free trail sports a working farm landscape, sweeping fields of flowers, beautiful and wild river plain, and breathtaking mountainous scenery.   Add to that the brilliant colors of Autumn’s foliage and you’re in for an unforgettable experience!  We will provide a Ride Guide full of information about the LVRT and the many shops and restaurants accessible from the trail and you have the freedom to decide where you want to go and what you want to see.  Try picnicking by the river or on a scenic area of the trail.  Plan your day around some shopping and dining at any of the authentic Vermont shops, cafes and restaurants located in each town, or in some cases, right on the trail.  You can also use the time to bike as much of the trail as you can fit into your tour time and catch as much of those foliage views as possible!

*This time of year can be a bit chilly in VT, especially in the mornings.  Thick layers, windproof outer layers and gloves are highly recommended to keep you cozy while you ride!
