Spring 2022 Introduction
Updated: Apr 16, 2022
ATA welcomes spring of 2022 with a flood of information, so we’ll keep it brief for now!
If you haven’t done so already, it’s time to join or renew your ATA membership through VMBA. Your membership and donations play vital roles in sustaining our trail community. Non-membership donations can be made either through the VMBA site (scroll to the bottom for donations directly to ATA) as well as on our ATA donation page. A little goes a long way , and every little bit helps!
All trails are still officially closed for mud season, and we’re just as anxious as you are for them to open! The MTB trail network is drying out at a good rate and our trail elves have been out and about prepping for opening day. We are hoping to be open for biking by April 23rd! The Summit-bound hiking trails in the state park are expected to open soon after that, due to the high elevation melt still in process.
Ascutney Day is back! Saturday May 28th 10am-2pm
ATA volunteers will be at the top of the mountain at the old Stone Hut site to celebrate the 54th Annual Ascutney Day. Make your way to the stone hut via the trail of your choice and join us for refreshments at the top. Read more on our ATA Events Page.
The Vermont Overland is hosting a trail run event for Spring 2022,and are donating a portion of their proceeds to ATA. On Memorial Day weekend they'll have a vendor expo on Sunday and race on Monday. Check out their event site to join the fun or help them out if you can.
Flow State mountain bike festival is back this year and tickets are on sale! Save the dates for July 29-31, 2022.
