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.
