Northern Borders is the latest addition to the Craftsbury Outdoor Center's singletrack network. Featuring big, swooping berms, narrowing bench cuts, and fun sniper lines to spice up your ride, Northern Borders is a great intermediate-to-advanced ride. The long climbs are punchy, but you're rewarded by downhills that offer both swooping, bermed corners and flat-out speed.

Access Info

At the north end, turn onto Leapfrog from Peanut and continue across the ski trail. At the southern end, continue across the ski trail after you've ridden Frog.
