Mtn Bike Trail :: Sneak Peek!

Evolution Trail – Sneak Peek!

7/07/2016 - Just got back from a fantastic ride on the Revolution trail connecting with Dana Hill Road and entered the newest Evolution trail (which is under construction) and about 2/3rds of the way done back down Revolution trail to my desk where I know sit.

I am a self described “Intermediate” rider, the Revolution trail is challenging without being scary or intimidating. Dana Hill rd. climb is a bear of a climb so most times I turn around and come back to Lareau Farm. I am tickled to have the newest trail Evolution to extend my ride and deliver me to the top of the hill where other trails connect with a whole network of riding in the Camels Hump State Forest-Howe Block. ┬áThe portion of the completed trail is flowy, fun and climbable without blowing a lung on the way up. Check out the pics below and come out for a ride. A BIG thanks to; VT Dept of Forest Parks and Recreation, Mad River Riders, Featherbed Inn, Dana Forest Farm and Sinuosity for building the trail. I am told it is going to be open for action in advance of the Vermont Mountain Bike Festival on July 23rd. Come out and ride! Stay for a visit, a cold beer at the end, delicious farm to table flatbread dinner, or longer deep relaxing stay at Lareau Inn (get multiple rides that way) — don’t forget to hit the swimming hole after!

NOTE: Please stay off the Evolution trail until construction is complete (July 21st, 2016)

First 180 degree turn, feels like a swirly with a great berm to bank your turn
