    These trails are now referred to as Mad River Trails.
    I rode them yesterday, and they are super nice. Not a lot of traffic so the trails are not destroyed. the terrain is magical.
    Map available online. Parking as shown. Excellent trails!

    OMG. I just rode Cyclone from Enchanted forest(Cyclone connector). WOW . what a crucial, techy, nasty, mofo of a trail! Not for the faint hearted! This killer has some serious rock gardens, drop offs, and twisty tasty surprises. I highly recommend Cyclone as one of Vermont's best secrets.Next time I want to hook up Cylone to Evolution to Revolution down to the Farm,all in one go.

    Reviewing Revolution:

    Revolution is a great adventure trail located out the back door of a flatbread restaurant and inn off route 100 near Waitsfield. You can park near the trail head and start whacking out a long killer climb, which is then ridden back(out and back). sounds boring, but brother, this place is magic. Up top you could link up with other trails (Evolution) on Dana Hill rd. But I like to turn tail and bomb back down to the car.
    Combine this blast with a tour of the trails on top of tucker hill road (misty, maple twist, techie)and you have a ready made epic.
    It is suggested to then stop in town for a fine craft brew and some much needed food. sweet.

    A great taste of classic New England singletrack. These trails had been on my bucket list for a few years and finally was able to ride them this July for the Vermont Mountain Bike Festival. There was a great combo of some flowy trails like Revolution and Evolution with some great technically challenging trails like Clinic and Cyclone. Lots of elevation so it is not for beginners (I would recommend Blueberry Lake down the road for them). I left the trail sweaty, tired and satisfied. Already planning my next trip back!

    Very creative, unexpected twists and bridges. A work of trail art.

    Reviewing Plum Line:

    Don't do it the other way, unless you like hiking with your bike for 45 mins straight. This trail is a huge mess when it rains. Stay away
