Route 100 is the key road up the middle of Vermont, and it passes through some lovely areas, including our village. There's not much traffic here, so biking is a wonderful way to get around. We have a world-class and well known bike store, Green Mountain Bikes, who have great bikes available for rental, or for service on your own bike. There are many hiking trails nearby, ranging from easy to challenging, and some of these trails are excellent for trail biking. In the winter, the nearby VAST system of trails offers some very special winter snowmobiling. Whatever your choice, the options are here!
