Memphremagog Trails


3/5/2020 Lower trails are all good. Upper Trails groomed Thursday night, base still excellent. 

The high winds mean lots of debris under softwoods again.

3/1/2020 Top of the World Trail cannot be groomed due to sap lines, but the owner allows skiers and snowshoers to go through.  

 Bluff Farm also good.

For any and all of you left behind in the frozen NEK wasteland while others have fled to the south, we will be getting together to ski Tuesday Feb 25 - a little earlier than usual Bill Koch time -  at 3 PM.  At least one group will head up the beautiful Top of the World trail.  If enough folks are game for that we may send some cars up to shuttle folks to the top.  We are going to potluck afterwards.  who knows, if the sun stays out that may even happen on the deck. But of course you do not have to potluck to join us outside. 

It is always in fashion to pick up branches,etc from the trail!

Do not park in front of owners driveway above the parking lot!!    


MSTF is a non profit corporation with a mission to create and promote a system of top-rate, easily accessible cross country ski and mountain bike trails. These beautiful trails are located off the Beebe Spur Rail Trail between Derby and Newport, Vermont, and  extend from Lake Memphremagog to the Top of the World.

MSTF Barn Party a smashing success.        See PIcs.

Year-Round Fun

Winter Use

For 2019 MSTF will return to the top of the World with groomed Skate and Classic Ski trails for all abilities.  In addition to the core trails in the Primeau Woods and Bike path, we will also be grooming the Bluff Farm.  Our fee structure has changed substantially - see the membership page or below. 

Summer Use

We have big plans! Over the next 2 years, we will be adding 7-10 miles of new single track and hiking trail, also extending to the beautiful "Top of the World" views.  State regulations are slowing this down somewhat but the state is also helping with a major grant! There will be a mix of beginner to intermediate terrain, including machine-built flow trails. 

We are partnering with VMBA (the Vermont Mountain Biking Association) in these efforts. MSTF members will now be joining VMBA with their summertime memberships, required for riding the trails. Joining our VMBA chapter (Memphremagog Trails) will entitle you to ride at more than 20 other VMBA sites around the state, as well as numerous other VMBA  benefits.  

Year-round memberships are discounted - see membership page
