Alburgh trails provide a mix of open farm fields and wooded roadways. From the shoreline of Alburgh Dunes State Park, along abandoned railroad lines, through acres of working farms to the picturesque village, the trails provide a pleasant ride for snowmobilers of all abilities. The “summit” adjacent to the Alburgh Golf Links provides a sweeping view of Lake Champlain and the Green Mountains to the east. Fuel and snacks are available right on the trail at Crossroads Travel Center (between GI 7 and GI 3) and Jolley Quick Stop in the village just past the school. The Alburgh Beverage Mart in the village is a great place to stop for homemade soups, fresh sandwiches and daily special dinners. (Dave Ladd photo)
