Welcome to the home of some of Vermont's finest mountain and road biking and one of the sweetest multi-use trail networks in the Green Mountains. The Riders' 45+ mile network features the most popular Mad River Valley trailheads for biking, hiking, skiing and snowshoeing, including the beginner-friendly Blueberry Lake trails in the Green Mountain National Forest and classic technical trails in Camel's Hump and Phen Basin State Forests.
We celebrated our 30th Anniversary in 2016 by hosting the Vermont Mountain Bike Festival at Mt. Ellen and are proud and delighted to be hosting again in 2017.
The Riders have official partnerships with the USFS-Green Mountain National Forest, VT-Forests, Parks & Recreation, the towns of Duxbury, Fayston, Moretown, Waitsfield, and Warren, and numerous private landowners; yielding one of the broadest coalitions of public and private landowners in Vermont and the US. It is through these partnerships that we are able to maintain over 45 miles of multi-use trails in the Mad River Valley with plans for new trail building in 2016.
