The Newport-Beebe Bike Path (about 6 miles in length), starts in Downtown Newport, near the City Docks, winding its way through the city, along the shores of Lake Memphremagog, crossing the causeway, wrapping around the high school, past North Country Hospital, where it connects with the old railroad line, connecting Newport and Ayer's Cliff, QC. Please plan ahead and do some research if you plan to cross the border in Beebe, Vermont. (Bring your passport.)
The views across the lake are spectacular.
The trail is a great place for walking, jogging and biking. Dogs are welcome. Please be considerate and keep your dog on leash, and scoop and clear the path as needed.
"The Beebe Spur is a scenic 4-mile rail-trail running from northern Vermont’s Newport towards the Canadian border. It follows Lake Memphremagog for most of the way, offering outstanding views of the water, as well as the Green Mountains. Along the way, you’ll also pass through wetlands and fields dotted with wildflowers. Although fairly level, mountain bikes are recommended due to the trail's packed gravel surface."
