Loss Of A Trail

The use of the Delaware-Hudson Rail Trail (West Rupert to West Pawlet and Poultney to Castleton) is no longer an option for wheeled rigs larger than a bike.  You can still walk, bike, scooter or ski the trail with your dogs; however there are gates at every intersection of trail and road that will not allow sleds or wheeled rigs through.
