New Lebanon has part of the historic Rail Trail running in it – and hopes it gets expanded soon. We have an active group that maintains it. They are also working on restoring the NL Train Depot that sits on the trail. Facebook group
New Lebanon has some of the most beautiful views in the County, from the mountains to the valley to the amazing sunsets and sunrises provided by Mother Nature.
Wildflowers and Trees
The wildflower bloom in spring is outstanding, the fall is glorious, and the summer brings constant surprises. Evergreens provide beautiful winter contrasts.
Dozens of species of birds as well as rabbits, bobcat, fox, deer, raccoon, possum, black bear, and an occasional moose. The fishing’s not bad either!
