Mountain Biking:
     Catamount has been in the business since the early days of mountain biking in the late 1980’s and has continued to change and grow with the sport. With over 20 miles of trails, including single track and double track, wider gravel trails, both flat and hilly trails in the woods and open fields, and two great pump tracks, Catamount has much to offer mountain bikers of all ages and abilities. We also offer a facility with quality rental bikes, maps, and more. In addition to our trail network, Catamount offers numerous mountain bike events and programs.  

Trail Running:
     Catamount has been a leader in trail running for many years. We offer over 20 miles of trails to run with many marked loops varying from 5 km-15 km and terrain and trail types for all ages and abilities. We offer numerous opportunities and programs for trail running. As a part of our summer program, we also offer Cross Country running camps for kids.
Cross Country Skiing:
     Catamount offers over 35 kilometers of cross-country ski trails groomed for both classical and skate techniques.  The terrain is varied with both flat and hilly trails and includes both wooded and open sections that offer beautiful views and scenic vistas.  Our lighted night loop provides 4 kilometers of trails for skiing and snowshoeing after the sun goes down.  We have marked loops with colored arrows for ease of navigation.  We offer a full-service rental center with equipment from Salomon for both adults and kids.

     Catamount offers a variety of snowshoeing opportunities. You can find your own space when you explore our dedicated snowshoe trail network.
