UVMBA maintains and expands access to multi-use, non-motorized trails in the Upper Valley of NH and VT, including the towns of Lebanon, Hanover, Hartford, Norwich, Plainfield and others. We are a volunteer, community-driven organization dedicated to being responsible trail stewards.
Snowshoeing always welcome and very much appreciated. ... See MoreSee Less
Thanks for the advice but I wasn't able to locate any latest (or even old) trail conditions on the link you provided. I love Trailforks. My only complaint is their process for reporting trail conditions is incredibly cumbersome to the point where, for all intents and purposes, Trailforks is not a viable resource for trail conditions.
aka Landmark tract
just fatties for now ?
Thank you! 👏👏👏👏

This year it will not be beers and tacos, or seeing old friends and new, but we still have info, updates and SWAG- and free beers! W The “meeting” includes updates about new trails, the results so far on emtbs, where your money goes, and more.
We are searching for a few new Directors for the Board. We have had to postpone the election planned for this year’s meeting to our 2022 meeting. There will be about 3 spots up for grabs in Jan 2022, and we encourage you to start thinking about it now, and those interested to attend some meetings (currently virtual and monthly) over the next year, to get a better feel for what is entailed. ...

or check UVMBA.org, the Lebanon map page- which also always has updates
glad I snuck in a ride yesterday
The a melted out dog print. The melting makes it get bigger. Bears have a double pad and would be wider and more oval than this.
That's a giant breed dog print I think. 4 toes instead of 5. Maybe I'm not seeing the thumb print for the 5th digit? For reference: www.alamy.com/black-bear-paw-image345297501.html
Avoid making the mud worse please- walk or turn back if your are sinking in please!
What kind of surfaces are you seeing? Just bare ground? Snow to snert lol? Thanks
But this cruddy weather pattern has not been quite cold enough to solidify all that liquid precipitation on top of the historic snowfall - and snowmelt.
Patience, and we will be riding righteous winter trails before you know it. ... See MoreSee Less
Settling in for the rain, plan is to groom after it settles out
Any update to when the Lot will be open?
Trails would most likely be open after xmas following a freeze. ... See MoreSee Less
Definitely lots of work still needed as of Sunday! Once it hardens up tho....niiiice!
Snowshoe packers are badly needed, and we thank you in advance for it- also a great workout!. See uvmba.org/winter-biking/grooming/snowshoegroom/ for specific guidance on packing. Please post your snowshoeing to trailforks. Trailforks has a snowshoeing activity option; if you tap the top where it usually says “mountain bike” you can change it to snowshoe. When creating a report, there are conditions options of “snow covered” “snow packed” “snow groomed” and “icy." Riding soon! In the meanwhile, skis and snowshoers are welcome on the trails.

Fun to see lots of folks out packing yesterday - All these look a lot better - Fun House and northern Burnt, White Heat, White Light. Minor Threat. Rabbit Hole still needs more IMO.
I'll be out packing, starting from Nature walk, tomorrow afternoon. Any recommendations which trail I should focus on?
Jennifer, thank you! Fun House needs some attention. From there if you were up to it - down Craft then to Connector.
The Snow Dog was able to get through Rt 10 and down Hardwoods. Then up Burnt Pathway. We need snowshoes to break trail on Fun House and White Heat before the Snow Dog can expand the network and further. If you want to ride it you have to snowshoe it. Thanks to everyone that has already helped out. Riding is still a ways away. Spread the word.
