Connecting Riders to Trails

Winter Trails

Winter Time in Vermont

VMBA has partnered with VAST, US Forest Service, Nordic centers and chapters to develop fat biking access for you. These relationships are a meaningful part of creating our amazing access and riding in Vermont.

The chapters listed below are the only sections of the VAST trail open for fat biking. There are new signs out there to help keep you on track. These signs will be used primarily for VAST sections and may not be seen on otherwise managed trails. It’s very important that you stay on these approved sections of trail.

The signage improves our shared use in a couple ways:

It alerts snowmobile operators that riders may be in the area and shows riders where sections of trail end and identify a private property border.

VMBA asks riders that enjoy theses groomed VAST trails to consider joining their local VAST chapter. Fat bikers are strongly encouraged to show an appreciation for VAST’s grooming efforts through participation in brush clearing days each fall.

Shared access and use is a wonderful opportunity to show other types of users respect and to share an appreciation for our beautiful landscape. To help that process along please read the Trails Etiquette information before riding.
