Mountain & Recreational
Bicycling In Vermont


Bicycling Icon Bicycling is a great way to enjoy Vermont during the warmer months, and it is one of the most popular things to do here. Touring and Mountain Biking are the most popular forms of biking in Vermont. There are also tons of Recreational Bike Paths for those of us who prefer pedaling along a shoreline or on flatter terrain. You'll find a list of the more popular ones in the column to your right.

Note: If you're not a regular cyclist, we strongly recommend you connect with one of Vermont's Bicycle Touring Companies listed below... They not only provide the equipment, they are with you every step of the way. And, this is extremely important as often you will be biking in the middle of nowhere, and maybe not always on flat ground!

Our famed Green Mountain National Forest offers Mountain Biking for every level of cyclist, be you a beginner or world-class. There are U.S. Forest Service Roads [Dirt Roads] that gently wind through the National Forest. Off-Road Mountain Biking Trails, and Gap Roads [Paved Roads] for the hearty and more experienced. The Gap Roads cross through the GMNF east and west. We recommend that you don't try the Gap Roads your first time out! Please note that under no circumstances are you permitted to bicycle on the Hiking Trails

Tip:If you are anywhere between Manchester and Rutland in the Southern part of the state, the 14 mile Forest Road #10 which cuts directly through the GMNF between Danby and Landgrove makes for a beautiful ride [Dirt Road - Cars Permitted]. There is a small picnic area on the Danby side with a spectacular river gorge just below it, and views of the mountains from your table!

You can obtain a detailed map of these Forest Roads from the Green Mountain National Forest Ranger District Office covering the area of interest to you. 

Vermont's legendary Northeast Kingdom provides totally different biking opportunities. Excluding Freeways and Arterial Highways, the Northeast Kingdom has just under 2300 miles of  ideal biking roads. 1,501 of  the roads in the Kingdom are unpaved; some may even give mountain bikers a challenge.
