Summary:
I think the riding is technical and demanding.ROOTS.That's ok.The reason I write this review is advocate anti mud riding regardless syndrome.The volume of mountain bikers is so much more than 5 years ago.I advocate ;because people like Hardy and myself donate 10 to 15 hours of our devotion to your soceity a week.Simple if it's wet;don't ride.If you visit a place and a sign says PLEASE DON'T RIDE or someone comes out and tells you PLEASE DON'T RIDE.Respect that.The other thing the mountain bike community is lacking is Indians.Hence the term to many chiefs no enough Indians.Another thing is that maany people allow us to use their property so graciously.Riding in mud is a thing of the past.

Recommended Route:
Go with the flow and do not alter trails and obstacles.

Summary:
There are some great trails here. They are hard to find. I suggest getting a tour to make the most of your time. Don't come if it's been raining. Check out Irie cycles for trail conditions and info as they are the local Stowe area bike club representitives. Greenmountainbiketours will get you some great riding, but most of it's on private land and therefore we are not into just sending people out. Hook up with a group heading out or get a tour. We are nice enough people if you respect our network, don't ride in the mud, are nice to other trail users, and aren't a jerk in general. Steve must have not been doing one of those things if he got hassled. To be honest, we would be happier if everyone went to New Jersy to ride, they have some great trails...but if you wanna come up and check it out there are some gems here.

Recommended Route:
Behind Irie Cycles

Summary:
We ran into some locals who were NOT very friendly. One of my friends came very close to getting in a fight with them. I guess they don't like to share their trails.

Recommended Route:
We saw some people up ahead and just followed them.

Other recommended trails in the same area:
Ok trails, but not worth getting hassled by the locals.

Summary:
fun but possibly not worth the climb unless you want a good workout- training

Recommended Route:
directions sre good. this trail is referred to as Tony's and if you head up west hill rd. instead of weeks hill and poke around at the top of the climb it is much longer and drops you off onto weeks hill rd. after a sweet techie bridge drop by Aj's house. This is not a new trail, there are however many new sweeties back by and through Zogz and Upper Charlies.

Other recommended trails in the same area:
too many to list

Summary:
To the folks from NJ and MA....whew! I'm glad you two didn't like Stowe. It's cool with us. More room for us locals. So, stay in MA, or NJ, or whatever flat, paved state you're from, and ride there.
As for the Maple Tree Run....it's simply excellent. But you'd better bring your lungs. There is climbing...and plenty of it. Roots. You betcha! Mud...yep, some of that too. Make NO mistake, this is a pretty technical ride. Those who love that kind of thing will still be challenged here...and of course, love it!
You're also going to want to leave your self plenty of time. Start in the early part of the day. There are plenty of trails to explore on this section of the mountain (keep in mind however, that some of this land is privately owned...treat it well, while the land owners let us ride it!). For you out-of-towners, don't be afraid to grab a map, or even a GPS. It IS possible to get a little lost out there.
I ride this loop about 2 to 3 times a summer. I'd ride it more...but there are SO many other good places to ride. Not just in Stowe, but all over VT. I'd really recommend riding Maple Run during the fall season. The views from the top are just wonderful.

Other recommended trails in the same area:
So many. Stop by the local bike shops. If you're lucky, maybe the guys there will point out some trailheads to you. IF you're lucky.
