BIKE ROUTES

There’s no better way to explore Vermont and take in the views than gravel riding! Vermont’s dirt roads are naturally tacky, meaning smooth roads and minimal dust. We’ve put together routes from one hour to all day long, piecing together miles of gorgeous roads with minimal traffic with some fun off-road connections.

 

We encourage you to explore any of the routes below for yourself using RideWithGPS or Strava, or book a tour with one of our professional guides who can put together the ideal itinerary for you. Need a bike? Gravel bike demos are available from our bike shop, Riders Outpost!

Sunset Chaser

  • DISTANCE: 13 mi (22 km)

  • VERTICAL: 1,500ft (460m)

  • SURFACE TYPE: Mostly unpaved

  • COMMENTS: Rigorous Gorgeous ride if you’re tight on time

  • DESCRIPTION: One hour until sunset?! This is the route for you! Everything is crammed into on hour: a killer workout climbing up along the Folsom Brook drainage onto the flanks of Scrag (elevation: 2874’), monstrous sweeping views of the Monroe Skyline, 2 sections of fun class IV roads, and a huge descent back to Madbush Falls.  Like most routes leaving the Valley, it starts with a steep climb. However, most of the climbing is over in the first 4 miles and all that’s left are the rolling hills and views of rural Vermont, a sweet downhill back into the Valley, and a beer and burger by the firepit.
