One of the best ways to explore the Vermont countryside is to get out and ride! Trapp Family Lodge's 2,600 acres feature an extensive mountain bike trail network with two skills parks. Ride our eight miles of expert and intermediate single track or more than 20 miles of double track through mountains, fields, and forests. Ride Hop Over or Lager Lane to the von Trapp Brewery Bierhall — the best trailhead ever!
We offer high-quality bike rentals through Giant & Scott Bicycles, as well as repair services and mountain bike lessons. Our mountain bike instructors are qualified to help hone your mountain bike skills or offer you mountain bike lessons for beginners right here in Stowe, Vermont. We pride ourselves on our beginner, intermediate, and expert trails here on property.
The Trapp Family Lodge mountain bike trails connect with an even more extensive Stowe trail network. We're aligned with the Stowe Trails Partnership, which manages three distinct trail pods: Cady Hill Forest, Adams Camp, and Sterling Forest (in addition to several connector trails, including Alex’s Trail in Dumont Meadow). Each of these pods is distinct in character, with widely differing trails, views, and terrain. Many of the trails are situated on lands permanently protected under conservation easements held or managed by the Stowe Land Trust and owned by the Town of Stowe. E-Bikes are not currently allowed on our trails.

Learn the fundamentals of mountain biking and be a safer and more confident rider. Lessons are two hours, which is long enough to learn the basics and do some trail riding, and are great for new riders or those looking for a tune-up.
