A short walk from the Marina Trailhead on the West River Trail sits one of two riverside viewing platforms. The other is located directly across the river, and can be accessed from Vermont Route 30. The twin platforms are part of the new I-91 bridge, completed in Autumn 2017. A short walk from the bustle of town, directly below a busy highway, the viewing platforms sit close to nature and the flow of the river.

And a special reminder from the Friends of the West River Trail about the upcoming work day! You know that song, “I’ve been working on the railroad?” Well, you can sing it — or not! — on the West River [Rail] Trail during our upcoming work day: West River Trail Work Day! Saturday, Nov 1, 10 a.m. to 1 p.m. No need to work “all the live-long day!” It’s just three hours, or as long as you want to stay. Meet at the Marina Trailhead. Bring Boots, Gloves and Water. We have plenty of tools, but if you prefer, bring your own shovel, iron rake, hand saw, clippers or leaf rake. It should be light work– mostly drainage clean out and pruning as needed. Hopefully it will be a great fall day on the trail! Bring a Friend! Questions? Email firstname.lastname@example.org. Hope to see you on the Trail!
