We were also the Editors' Choice in the 2011 edition of the Yankee Magazine Travel Guide to New England. We operate these non-motorized trails year-round with opportunities for all levels of ability.
We were also named BEST OF NEW ENGLAND by Boston Magazine Travel & Life. We are located in East Burke, Vermont, named one of the 101 Best Outdoor Towns in the U.S. Enjoy the pastoral and wild setting in the rolling hills of Vermont's Northeast Kingdom while you are MOUNTAIN BIKING, HIKING, TRAIL RUNNING, NORDIC SKIING, and SNOWSHOEING.
Kingdom Trails is a charitable non-profit conservation organization, driven by a volunteer Board of Directors, working in partnership with private landowners, local businesses, government agencies and other non-profit organizations to create and manage out-door recreation opportunities and preserve and protect trails. During all seasons of the year we offer an extensive trail network for non-motorized, multi-use recreation activity. Currently all mapped trails in our local area are on private land. Kingdom Trail Association was formed to create legal access to these trails and manage the system. In order to generate the funds needed to maintain the trail system and manage usage on private land the Association requires all users to purchase either a Day Member Pass or a Membership to access the trail system. We strive to keep our rates extremely low so that everyone will be able to enjoy the trails.
Kingdom Trail Association was established in 1994 by a group of visionary residents and business leaders in the area. Their goal is to encourage recreational use of the Northeast Kingdom that is ecologically sensitive and promotes the natural beauty of the region. Major support for this effort has come from the National Park Service; the Vermont Community Foundation; the Vermont Department of Forest, Parks and Recreation; the Connecticut River Valley Partnership Program, The Windham Foundation, KTA members and volunteers.
Our mission is to provide recreation and education opportunities for local residents and visitors while working to conserve natural resources and create economic stimulation.
We strive to accomplish this mission by providing a network of quality non-motorized trails for all levels of ability incorporating the best of the natural scenery and natural diversity. We have the permission of over 50 local landowners and businesses to make this all possible.
