Kingdom Trails

Top choice outdoors in Northeast Kingdom

In 1997 a group of dedicated locals linked together 200-plus miles of single and double tracks and dirt roads to form this astounding, award-winning trail network. Passing through century-old farms and soft forest floors dusted with pine needles, it offers one of New England's best mountain-biking experiences. In winter, the trails are ideal for cross-country skiing, snowshoeing and fat biking.

From May to October, buy passes at the Kingdom Trails Welcome Center in East Burke. From December to March, head uphill to the Nordic Adventure Center. Note that trails are closed in April and November.
