Staff Profile: Jordan Newth

Our hardworking staff keeps Vermont State Parks looking beautiful and running smoothly all year long. The parks are a fun place to work and we are lucky to count so many interesting people among our staff members. One of these individuals is Jordan Newth, Maintenance Assistant for the southwest region of the state and Professional Downhill Mountain Biker!

Growing up in West Rutland, Vermont, Jordan has been racing mountain bikes professionally since he was eight years old. He has raced all over North America and internationally, and is currently ranked 1st/2nd on the New England professional circuit this year. According to Jordan, his favorite part of the sport is getting to travel and “go to races all over the world and do what I love.”

Jordan began working for the Department of Forests, Parks and Recreation seasonally in 2006 and just finished his 9th year. He says that he loves getting to do different things every day and having the opportunity to work in 11 different parks.

Every fall, Jordan heads to Colorado and he will soon be gearing up for the Continental Championships in Columbia in late March. This will be his first time in South America and he is looking forward to getting to race there and visit the region.

So cool! Best of luck, Jordan!
