North Branch Park Trail
Organization: City of Montpelier, VT Parks Department
Status: Project complete
Type: Mountain bike project
Address: North Branch Park, Montpelier, VT
Vermont's City of Montpelier Parks & Recreation Department received a $4,000 grant to help construct a bike-legal connector trail from the city center to the mountain bike trails outside of town. Before the trail was built, mountain bikers had to drive to legal trails or ride on the road, as the trails within Montpelier's North Branch Park were closed to cyclists. The connector trail provides an off-road solution for mountain bikers and mitigates user conflict in the park.
