“The Village Trail,” part of the WAMBA trail network at Mt. Peg, is a green circle mountain bike/multi-use trail that connects Woodstock Village with the Mt. Peg summit lookout. This one mile long trail climbs 363 feet to the ridgeline of Mt. Peg, the Summit lookout and picnic table, and the rest of the Mt. Peg mountain bike, hiking, nordic ski, and snowshoe trail networks.

The Village Trail was developed by the Woodstock Area Mountain Bike Association (WAMBA), in partnership with the Billings Parks Commission and the Town of Woodstock. Through many, many hours of planning and approval, the various stake-holders in this project agreed that this trail would both connect historic Woodstock Village to the wonderful recreation trails of Mt. Peg, and help create a stronger community connection between WAMBA, the Billings Park Commission, and the town. Funding for the trail was raised by WAMBA through Vermont Mountain Bike Association (VMBA) trail grants, WAMBA member funding, and private donor gifts.

The trail was built by a largely volunteer crew from WAMBA. Led by head trail builder Gavin Vaughan and his assistant trail builder Graham Farrington, construction began in the winter of 2020 with flagging, and was completed in September 2021 with hand-tool finish work. Under the direction of WAMBA Trail Boss Kent McFarland, hundreds of volunteer hours were amassed throughout the spring and summer, as dozens of WAMBA volunteers all played a role in building this trail.

The Village Trail is a multi-use trail, built primarily for two-way mountain biking traffic- so please be aware of slower riders, hikers, and dog walkers.
Hikers- please yield to bike traffic
Bikers- please control your speed around hikers and dog walkers.
Dog walkers- for your pooch’s safety, dogs MUST BE ON LEASH on The Village Trail.

       Smooth, wide and mellow switchback climb that provides easy access to the northern edge of the network.
