The Little Bacon Loop is an exciting start to building bike trails around Bacon Hill.

Mahoosuc Pathways has taken the lessons learned from building hiking trails, and the Bethel Village multi-use trails, and created an incredibly fun trail.

While you can ride the trail counter clockwise (and get an incredibly cool rock wallride), the trail is designed to be ridden clockwise.

Access Info

From the Long Mountain Trail parking lot, cross the bridge. The climb will start directly ahead. To your right is the end of the trail, and to the left is the Long Mountain Trail
