New Mountain Bike Trails Set To Open At Little River State Park
|Hard at work on the new trail!|
Plans for these trails have been in the works for years, and will be maintained in partnership with the Waterbury Area Trails Association, a chapter of VMBA (the Vermont Mountain Bike Association.)
"These are really fun, flow- style trails- something the public is demanding more and more," says Jessica Savage, recreation program manager for the Vermont Department of Forests, Parks and Recreation. "They even made the uphill workout fun, by providing features like bermed turns and small jumps for those who like them and ride-arounds for those who don't."
Trail crews and dedicated volunteers have been hard at work at the park up until this week, helping to finish the project on time.
The public is welcome to attend the trails’ official opening, which will be hosted by VMBA, WATA, and state officials. Meet at the History Hike Trailhead at Little River State Park. And most importantly, plan to stop by the park for a ride sometime soon!
