“It is by riding a bicycle that you learn the contours of a country best, since you have to sweat up the hills and coast down them.” - Hemingway
The Jay Peak area is home to some great mountain biking. Over 20 miles of trail is maintained by the Grateful Treads Mountain Bike Club, our local VMBA chapter.
The Jay Community Recreational Centre located on Cross Road in Jay has about 7 miles of singletrack traversing the foothills of Jay Peak. Offering riding for all abilities, this is a great place to explore with the family.
New for 2020, we are expanding our riding opportunities at the Montgomery Rec Center too! A couple miles of family friendly loops, new skills trail and pump track are all within riding distance of the shop
Nestled along the spine of the Green Mountains, Montgomery's rugged foothills are filled with back roads to explore. Get off the beaten path and see what our piece of Vermont has to offer.
There is nothing flat in Vermont, and the mountains and valleys will lead you to beautiful sights. East of town is Hazen's Notch (VT Rt 58) leading over to Lowell, Westfield and beyond. West lies Enosburg Mountain Road, a rugged Class IV road travelling up and over to the farm country of the Champlain Valley.
