The Blueberry Lake trails were designated in 2013 as an International Mountain Bike Association Model Trail-Gateway network and are great for beginners.
Head to Tootsie Roll first for smooth surfaces and gentle grades. Next try Flying Squirrel for a fast and fun ride through the trees. Lenord’s Loop adds more challenge with more climbing and descending on bermed switchbacks and rollers. Suki’s Alley and Amenta’s Way are super flowy with rock features and optional jumps. Look for views of the lake from Tootsie Roll, the beautiful birch forest of Flying Squirrel, and a mountain lookout from Amenta’s Way. These trails are very popular for hiking and trail running too.
The Collaborative is a watershed-wide network of lands and trails created through a partnership of local organizations, generous property owners, towns, the State of Vermont, the US Forest Service, and many volunteers. These trails reflect the Mad River Valley’s love of the outdoors and commitment to stewardship of land and recreational opportunities for current and future generations.
