Outdoor Recreation

One of the best parts of Vermont is that we have it all, and so close by. Vacations aren't meant entirely for sitting around, so get out there and have some fun.

Biking During Fall Foliage

A Mountain Biking Mecca

With some of the best mountain biking in the east, Vermont's gravel roads and old logging trails can’t be beat. Choose from single track or downhill, trek through forests and meadows, or explore an abandoned granite quarry.
