Bob Primeau has been doing a great job of roughing out the connector trail north of Ridge Hill drive. It will become a good trail much more quickly if we do some finish work on it. I find the best tool is the yellow McLeod to smooth it out, and either hand clippers or other clippers to remove the roots. If you have an hour or two of extra time, we will all benefit if we pitch in. Thanks. Peter Harris We store tool in the back corner of the barn.
8/13...Two new mountain bike trails are now open! “Brand X“ which is a really fun downhill trail and of course “Back Up.” Both are accessed from the Ridgehill Connector Trail.

MSTF Barn Location
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.
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 - click the membership button above for all membership options.
