Mountain Bike Vermont

Vermont is home to more than 1,400 miles of rocky, rooty, bermy, and flowy mountain biking trails maintained by 29 local chapters throughout the state. Some Vermont ski resorts offer lift-served downhill biking in the summer made up of machine-built jumps, bridges, and banked turns. At trailheads, find pump tracks for bikers to practice their rollers. Whether you’re craving the challenges of technical terrain or seeking some smooth flow, the trails in Vermont’s mountain biking networks lead to adventure and incredible views.
