Vermont’s Green Mountain National Forest is divided in two, with northern and southern sections. The 20,000 acres that make up the northern part, called Moosalamoo, is home to more than 60 miles of groomed cross-country ski trails maintained by the Blueberry Inn, Rikert Ski Touring Center, and Churchill House Inn, as well as the Catamount Trail and other systems.
The loop begins with a gentle dip behind the blue inn, which was built in 1813, crossing a brook and then heading upward through the woods. The trail system is constructed in such a way that there are a series of climbs with plateaus, offering a flat respite as a reward for every effort. Surface quality: Groomed, single tracked, skate lane.
