Trails: Private Property –
This trail passes through private property. Please respect the landowner and protect future access by staying on the marked trail and following all rules.


From Poultney, head east on VT-140 for 3.8 miles. Take a slight left onto Town Farm Road. The parking area will be on the right after 0.1 miles.


The Fairgrounds trails loop on both sides of VT-140. The majority of the trails are singletrack, but there are doubletrack connections as well. The easier trails are closer to the trailhead while the longer loops are rated more or very difficult. Although the trails were built for mountain biking, hiking, running and snowshoeing is also allowed. Please be aware of other trail users as you enjoy these trails. The Midway doubletrack is not recommended for bikes.

The trailhead has a porta-potty, but no other facilities.
