Mountain Biking in Vermont

Vermont, United States, North America: Mountain biking at Sugarbush's insider take:

One of the world's best places to mountain bike is the Northeast Kingdom, a royally unspoiled and forested corner of Vermont that kisses the Canadian border and the Connecticut River. Here, the Kingdom Trails Association maintains a 110-mile network of multi-use trails that twirl through the woods (802-626-0737; Rent bikes and purchase passes at East Burke Sports (802-626-3215;, and lay your head at Lyndonville's Wildflower Inn. Other fat-tire options can be found at Millstone Hill, a 30-mile-plus web of trails around abandoned granite quarries—some filled with Caribbean-blue water—in Barre ( Outside the Kingdom, several Vermont ski resorts, including Sugarbush (1840 Sugarbush Access Rd., Warren; 800-537-8487;, Killington (4763 Killington Rd., Killington; 800-621-6867;, and Mount Snow (Mount Snow Rd., West Dover; 802-464-2151;, offer lift-served, downhill mountain biking for all ability levels throughout the summer. Bring Band-Aids, though—it can get pretty rough.
