    Kudos for Millstone Trails

    Just back from Millstone this weekend and wanted to say that I'm consistently impressed with the quality of the trail network built by the MTA. The new trails are awesome and the whole network is a step up in technical difficulty over the Kingdom Trails.

    This network is really worth a stop for anyone heading to Vermont to ride. We also had a chance to stay at the Millstone Lodge. That place is awesome, and cost the same as the moldy, mildew infested Days Inn we checked into (and quickly checked out of). The lodge appears to be a well kept secret since it was mostly vacant...I don't get it...there's even a fresh, home-cooked breakfast!

    Kudos to the MTA crew, and to Pierre for helping to create a great riding resource!

    First ride of the season there today. The new trail is a nice blend of built trail and raked trail. It flows really well. The enhanced features are solid and well concieved. Fun little drops. Lots of granite. The rest of the network is slowly getting improved as well. Great job to the folks who are volenteering their time over there.

    I was there Sunday and avoided the new stuff because it was too wet, and that stuff is fragile right now. I've ridden it before though and I can attest, it's sweet. I am a huge fan of the MTA and all the work they do!
    Too many trails, so little time!

    Well said everyone. Currently my husband and I are staying at the Lodge at Millstone and have ridden the trails over the past three days. This is also our third trip to this area from PA and every time we return it keeps getting better. Pierre is a wonderful and engaging host and treats his guests very well. I would encourage anyone who visits here to stay a few days and learn how to work the trail system for it is well worth the effort.

    Enjoyed the video. Thanks for sharing! Looks like those shots mostly covered Screamin' Demon, Roller Coaster & Harrington Heights for those wondering.
