Notice of road closure: a class 4 road in Elmore and Worcester, mapped on the VMBA Central Vermont Mountain Bike Map as road #46, has reverted to private ownership and has been closed to mountain bikes.
The VMBA Central Vermont Class 4 Road Project assessed most of the class 4 - 7 roads in 23 towns in a region of Vermont (shown in yellow on the adjacent map) that includes all the towns of Washington County and the towns of Orange, Washington, and Williamstown in Orange County. The purpose was to determine which roads are suitable for mountain biking. The assessments were done in 1999. The results can be seen in a printed 36 inch x 38 inch map available at no charge from VMBA or participating bike shops. You can also access much of the information from this web page. This includes downloadable Adobe PDF for the map, instructions for use of the map, and the road assessments.
Before downloading any PDF, read Adobe PDF Tips. The 36 inch x 38 inch map PDF is very big (over 5 Meg), so be sure to read these tips.
