Ride Description

The Humphrey’s Mountain Bike Trail is located at the west end of Church Street at the intersection of the Dorset West Road. The trail was built by Northshire Trail Systems, who continue to maintain and build more single track mountain bike trails in our area. Park at the Dorset Green on Church Street just off of Rt. 30 in Dorset Vt. Grab something to eat and drink at the Dorset Union Store – Sorry no bathroom here – then head west along Church Street for 3/10th of a mile to the intersection of the Dorset West Road. Go left (south) for about 150′ and look right and see our trail head. The Dorset Trails include two trails – the entry trail Humphreys, which winds up the hill about 2.5 miles and then branches off onto the Bunker loop, which adds another 7/10th of a mile, and reconnects to to Humphreys trail. After a ride be sure to visit the Dorset Inn, Dorset Rising Bakery, H.N. Williams Store or Barrows House, for great food and beer.
