Stick Season

The leaves have fallen, the wood is stacked and there's a chill in the air. It's time to come inside for a bit and wait for some white stuff to fall. While you're waiting, you can start making plans for your winter getaways. Soon enough, the snow will be here and the lifts will be spinning.

Adventures Await...

Things to do

The trails may be closed for biking, but you can still enjoy the crisp fall air via a gravel ride or hike. If you do venture on the trails, be mindful that it is also hunting season in Vermont. Make sure to wear something bright orange and make sure your dog does the same.
