Green Mountain Trail Access

Status: Project complete

Type: Mountain bike project

Address: Green Mountain National Forest's Moosalamoo National Recreation Area, VT

The Vermont Mountain Bike Association (VMBA) received $9,200 for their Green Mountain National Forest Access Program. This grant is helping VMBA reconstruct and extend three sections of singletrack in the Green Mountain National Forest's Moosalamoo National Recreation Area—previously off-limits to mountain bikes. Our funding is leveraging a National Forest Foundation grant as well as state funding for this important mountain bike initiative. VMBA, the state's stellar mountain bike advocacy group, works to increase ridership in Vermont while minimizing impact on public lands through sustainable trailbuilding and stewardship. They also foster active, healthy lifestyles through Trailheads, their youth mountain biking program, and are working to promote mountain biking at eastern ski areas in the summer months.
