A recreational trail is advancing in Vermont and New Hampshire; a partnership between snowmobile clubs, trail groups and government agencies in both states to build 150 miles of contiguous trail from Swanton, Vt., to Woodsville, N.H. Marianne Borowski, a Glen, New Hampshire resident who spearheaded the Cross Adventure New Hampshire Trail and is among those leading the Vermont trail effort. The current rail trail does not yet extend border to border across Vermont or connect into New Hampshire. The project is a unique collaboration between Vermont and New Hampshire snowmobile clubs, the Vermont Association of Snow Travelers (VAST), the New Hampshire Snowmobile Association, state agencies, the Cross New Hampshire Adventure Trail, and the Rails-to-Trails Conservancy, and it’s part of the conservancy’s vision for its 1,000-mile New England Rail Trail network, said Borowski. The completed sections are seeing use.
