Winooski West

The 1st section of the Central Vermont Regional Path, known as Winooski West, runs from the Dog River Recreation Area, out near the Public Works garage and the Town Berlin, along the Winooski River to downtown Montpelier. It was divided into 2 stand-alone segments due to budget and other constraints at that time. Segment I, which is 1.3 miles long and runs from the Dog River Recreation Area to Taylor Street, was completed in 1999. It meanders along the banks of the Winooski River and connects to the Vermont State Employees Credit Union, Montpelier High School, Green Mountain Power, State offices and free parking at the Department of Employment and Training, and the Peace Park.

Segment 2 of the Winooski West, which has not been designed or built yet, is intended to continue the path from Taylor Street, along the Winooski River, across the North Branch River and into the downtown, to connect to Winooski East, on Stone Cutters Way.

A Conceptual Alignment Analysis was completed in 2002, which studied the range of possible ways to connect section one of the Winooski West Bike Path, which begins or ends at Taylor Street (depending on whether you're coming or going), with the Winooski East Path at Stone Cutters Way.
