West Fairlee: A small town on the western edge of our mapping area, hikers are much more likely to find services in either Orford (NH) or Fairlee. However, for anyone hiking the Cross-Rivendell Trail from the AT to Vershire, VT, West Fairlee will figure prominently on this hike.
While most of the businesses in West Fairlee are located on Vermont 113, Treasure Island on Vermont 244 (which starts in Thetford and ends in Fairlee) has a lifeguard-patrolled beach and boating rentals in season.
Did you know? Since 2000, middle and high school students in West Fairlee go to school in Orford, New Hampshire as part of the Rivendell Interstate School District.
