These moderate to expert trails include a portion of the Catamount trail and are great for mountain biking and hiking in the warmer months. Link directly to the Eurich Pond network via Techie or down to German Flats road near the Fayston school via Catamount. Check out the bridge and boardwalk through the trees over Chase brook.
Note that dogs are not allowed on the portions of Harris Hill Loop, Catamount, and Techie that are on Marble Hill Farm property. Be aware of posted signs.

The Mad River Riders, a founding chapter of the Vermont Mountain Bike Association (VMBA), maintain a 58+ mile network of multi-use trails throughout the Mad River Valley. Our trails are open to the public and free to use for biking, hiking, walking, running, skiing, and snowshoeing. We have something for everyone, from beginner friendly Tootsie Roll at Blueberry Lake, to the flow of Evolution, to the classic lines of Clinic and Cyclone, to the rocky challenge of Chain Gang.
Help us build more trails and maintain this awesome network; consider becoming a member or donating to the Trail Fund. Visit our website to learn more about our trails, events, rides, work days, and new projects.
