      Kingdom Trails is open while cautiously keeping the health and safety of our landowners, staff, community members, and trail users as the priority. The trails are open with COVID19 restrictions. Please follow all trail signage and see our COVID19 opening restrictions on our website. Make sure to check out the all new trail NewT on Darling Hill

      Trailforks is displaying only the trails that are open for biking. Riders must at all times adhere to the KTA Ride with Gratitude Code of Conduct and, in particular, respect trail closure signs.

      Most of the trails in the Kingdom are on private property that more than 90 land owners make available to the Kingdom Trail Association (KTA) for our enjoyment. Retaining the goodwill of the land owners is critical for the future of Kingdom Trails and, if you meet one of them on the trails or in town, please express your appreciation.

      Kingdom Trails is managed by the Kingdom Trail Association (KTA), a 501(c)3 charitable organization, which was established in 1994 by a group of visionary residents and business leaders in the area. Their goal is to encourage recreational use of the Northeast Kingdom that is ecologically sensitive and promotes the natural beauty of the region.

      For more information on KTA, the trails, the community, and hospitality options, please visit the Kingdom Trails Website at the link below.

      Disclaimer:
      RIDE WITH GRATITUDE

      RESPECT THIS GIFT
      Riding trails on public lands is a gift, not a right. That hiker you just passed? She might own the land we're riding on. With Every ride, let's remember to be grateful for the landowners and others who make it possible.

      PROTECT NATURE
      Enjoy nature, don't ruin it. Keep on the trails. Erosion is our single highest impact when we're out riding. Skidding causes erosion. Cutting corners can cut off access. Riding muddy trails messes it up for everyone. If we see animals, don't bother them, remember them. Pick up trash, pack it out, carpool here and back.

      CARE FOR OTHERS
      We share the trails with others, and they have the same rights and responsibilities as each of us. If someone needs help, we help. If someone needs encouragement, we share our enthusiasm. And if it's going to make the situation better, we dismount. Be nice, yield to others, and give a smile.

      BE THE EXAMPLE
      Being aggressive has no place in mountain biking. We know our limits, and we ride within them. Beyond the ride, let's park where we're supposed to, keep the tunes to a dull roar, and leave the IPAs for apres somewhere else. Reckless behaviour? A simple, polite call out will do.
