About This Activity

West River Trail Run takes place along the West River in Southern Vermont.

The run will start at the South Londonderry Depot, 34 West River Street, South Londonderry, VT 05155

and end at Jamaica State Park, 48 Salmon Hole Lane, Jamaica, Vermont 05343

 

Runners have the option to ride the bus from Jamaica State Park back to the start after awards ceremony.

 

Relay teams are allowed one car during the run to transport.

 

Runner 1: 4 miles of flat trail. Runner is on the main rail-trail, which provides a more gentle grade and relatively easy travel. Trail follows the campground road through the campground and over a single-lane bridge crossing the Winhall River.

Runner 2: 4 miles of uphill and switchback, single trail. From the south trailhead of Winhall Campground, the surpack surface of the West River Trail continues along the river's edge. Becoming a footpath through the forest, the single-track section of trail involves several short uphill jaunts and a variety of stream crossings. This is considered the most challenging section of the trail.

Runner 3: 3.5 miles of gradual downhill and flat trail. The switchback trail traverses back and forth across the steep face of the dam, arriving in the river valley as a footpath. The trail follows the river down stream, crossing the Cobb Bridge. The West River Trail continues along the old railroad grade. This section of trail is well-used and provides easy running with lovely views of the river.

This event is capped at 100 Runners. Please register early.
