For nearly two decades...
scores of volunteers have worked with the VAST staff to advance the Lamoille Valley Rail Trail project and to help maintain the open sections of the trail. Initially, volunteers came from the membership of snowmobile clubs.

Around the year 2006, the Lamoille Valley Rail Trail Committee (LVRTC) was created by the VAST Board of Directors. The committee was charged with developing a management plan for the trail and providing oversight for the project. The LVRTC was structured to consist of an equal number motorized (e.g snowmobile) and non-motorized recreation members. The committee meets quarrterly at 5:30 on the third Wednesday at the Tegu Building in Morrisville and these meetings are open to the public. Check the News & Events page on this website for the next meeting date. Positions on the LVRTC become open from time to time. If you are interested in joining the committee, please attend an upcoming meeting an upcoming meeting or send a message to firstname.lastname@example.org.
