Leverich Canyon is a super fun Bozeman trail. This trail is on National Forest land and it’s a one-way, bermed, banked, jump filled romp!
Based on the tip from Scott, I decided to check out the trails at “Mad River” that are even better than the Perry Hill trails…
So the guy from Millstone told me to go check out Perry Hill, near Waterbury VT.
His description made it sound like a flow trail or something. He described it as a descending trail that had some berms and some tough downhills. But a “flow” trail this was not. The berms were on the climbing trail! The descent was anything but a machine-built sidewalk…
I ran into one of the trail-builders at the trail head, and I talked to him and scratched his old dog. It was cool to talk. He rode my bike around and decided he wants to get a new bike. I got to complement the massive amount of work and thank him. Then he tipped me off about another possible area to go ride, hopefully I will do that tomorrow.
Since 2008, I think I’ve done about 5 trips to Vermont’s, Kingdom Trails.
In the early days, it was a small, sleepy village with a decent set of trails. A lot of the trails had fun design but there was a niggling sense that there were lots of small issues. As the place was growing in popularity and gaining a lot more bike traffic, any spots that had trail construction issues were highlighted. It was good, it was big, it was fun, but it had a few rough edges.
Anyhow, over the years, the place has improved dramatically and now, delivers on all its promise. It’s a busy fat-tire resort which is highly polished. It’s well worth the trip. They even have Iced Vermont Coffee Company coffee in the General Store!
This post isn’t about that.
After a lot of rides here, I finally cracked the code on this east coast destination. Hiding here is a, top-secret, Big Mountain-style ride. It’s there, lurking right out in the open. But it’s completely off the radar for some reason.
Corner Brook has a ton of interesting trails plus a ton of frogs.
