More good news. Parts of this area, including the Catamount and Mill Brook Trails are in the process of being purchased by the Mad River Path Association. Access for mtbikers is about to be fully protected. Sweet!

Great moderate climb with many rooty and rocky sections. Very cool off camber log bridge is an excellent challenge, especially when damp. Trail is also popular with day hikers. Look for bear markings on the Beech trees near the top of the trail. Steep rocky sections have a few line choices. That helps keep the riding fresh and also lets you really charge the climbs. Remember VT ain't flat. Once at the top you are just a quick road ride to Sugarbushs trails at the ski resort

Park a Mad River Cyclery RT 100 & 17. Ride up 17 and take one Mad River Rec Path till it connects to Sugar Run

Jumped on trail for 1/2 mile after grueling climbs at Camel's Hump State Forest (See trail review in Vermont trails section of this web site). Nice techy ride. Cannot wait to return to ride the entire length of Mad River Trail/Sugar Run. Heard from Mad RIver Bike Shop that there are more trails after you finish the Mad River Trail around Mad River Glen Ski Area!

Customer Service

What I think Ben has called Sugar Run is actually the Mad River Trail. Park at the Mad River Bike Shop and pedal up RT 17 to Turners Road (2nd or 3rd left, steep gravel road with white sign approx 100 yards on right) (Camels Hump State Forest approx 1 mile up same road with a parking area)

Just one of the entrances to some of the best sniggle riding in the val. Check out the techy series, the old race course, ridgie, geyer's, hill, misty maples, plum creek, etc.

If you see debris on the trail please get off and move it for me, I'm too self-absorbed and into my own riding to be bothered. It sure is nice to have all this riding and not have to do any work.

The stuff up high above Marble Hill is superior 'squiggle' riding. Last time, we got a little lost and rode some thigh-high vegetated old log roads - they exited to more good riding. Small hidden trails directly W of Dana Hill should NOT be missed. Slippery when wet. The wood bridges on the Millbrook Trail are invitations to get very smacked up if they are not bone dry. I got off one and literally skiied it's length on my riding shoes when it was wet. Really some superior stuff out there. I suggest alowing plenty of time, so you can essentially turn off wherever you desire. Follow your nose!

Customer Service

Access either via German Flats on left before North, or or at the top of Marble Hill.
