View Connector Trails


Follow VT-17 west from the VT-17/VT-100 intersection for 1.8 miles. Turn left onto German Flats Road. Follow for 0.7 miles. Park in the lot on the left at McCollough Barn, across from the Fayston Elementary School. Look for a bridge and ramps climbing the bank to access the trail.


These moderate to expert trails connect Fayston to the larger Mad River Riders trail systems. There is a mix of trails from intermediate to expert. Catamount Trail, in particular, provides a fun trail for both climbing and descending with both features and flow. Techie is an expert trail that will connect riders into the Eurich Pond or Camels Hump State Forest - Howe Block trail systems.

Dogs are not allowed on the Chase Brook Town Forest - Marble Hill Farm trails.
