Inns & Other
Site-Specific Biking Options
From inns and outdoor/family centers, to ski areas and bike/rail
trails, there are a number of established sites in Vermont that
offer road and mountain biking opportunities. The inns and outdoor/family
centers often offer biking as part of a package deal (or just
as a stand-alone option). For ski areas, the ability to transform
their ski trails into mountain biking courses allows the areas
to expand the business beyond the winter. Rail and bike trails
are generally free to use and, especially with the rail trails,
sponsored by groups of volunteers who help to maintain and map
