View Connector Trails
From downtown Newport, head north on US-5. Turn left on Sias Ave. After 0.7 mile, Sias Ave becomes Darling Hill Road. The turn for the Memphremagog Trails parking is on the left, 0.4 miles after Darling Hill Road turns due north (1.6 miles after turning onto Sias Ave).
Parking is also available at the Land Lab off of Upper Quarry Road and at the North Country Hospital (grooming starts at the Beebe Spur Rail Trail, approximately 0.1 miles from the hospital parking).
The the main trail system at Memphremagog Trails has something for all skiers, from beginners to experts. The trails are managed and maintained by volunteers who are part of the Memphremagog Ski Touring Foundation (MSTF). The trails are free and open to the public for day use. To support the trails, make a donation or become a member of MSTF. For information on membership, visit the Memphremagog Trails website.
On the west side of Darling Hill Road there are a series of easy and intermediate loops swooping through the hills and forest. These trails also connect to the Beebe Spur Rail Trail, which Memphremagog Trails grooms in the winter. The trails on the east side of Darling Hill expand eastward in a series of loops. Take care on the hills as all trails are two-way.
All of the ski trails are open for biking and foot travel in the summer.

Leave No Trace Principle
Travel and Camp on Durable Surfaces
Stick to established trails and campsites. If there's no trail, try to walk on rock, gravel, or snow and spread out so that your group doesn't create a trail.
