Memphremagog Trails


Merry Christmas! The little bit of dense Christmas snow improved conditions and allowed ginzu grooming - skating on Sswamp and fields is much better. Tracks still limited until we have more base.   Upper trails will need more snow and may be delayed by construction.  Grooming Report

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.

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 - click the membership button above for all membership options.
