We will begin near the eastern end, from just south of Bar Harbor as we head west.

After crossing Maine we will pick up the Cross New Hampshire Trail. It includes the Presidential Rail Trail, the Ammonoosuc Rail Trail and the Pondicherry Wildlife Refuge.

At Charlotte (VT) we will cross Lake Champlain by ferry to Essex (NY), ride south on the Champlain Valley Trail, then west on the Erie Canal Trail route to Buffalo.

Kathleen JonesI think that’s a great route, especially incorporating the cross-state routes. Local knowledge!

Bob DistelbergLooking forward to your experiences on the Cross Vermont Trail. Haven't explored that yet, but would like to. Also, be aware that the Burlington-Port Kent ferry is closed for the season. https://ferries.com/vt-ny-ferry-routes/burlington-vt-port-kent-ny/burlington-vt-port-kent-ny-crossing-temporarily-closed-vt-port-kent-ny/
The ferry further south (Charlotte-Essex) is open though.
