All of these area are connected and can be accessed with short road crossings. Mountain bikers looking for a challenge will not be disappointed. Millstone’s technical terrain, complete with rock piles, elevated bridgework and skinnies, will appeal to intermediate and expert riders alike. With trail names like Angry Gnome, Screamin Demon and Rollercoaster, how can you go wrong? There are also miles of beginner trails so mountain bikers of all levels can enjoy this diverse terrain.
While exploring the trails, be sure to enjoy the unique features of the Millstone areas including: scenic vistas of the Green Mountains from towering grout (waste granite) piles, dramatic quarries now filled with turquoise water, and relics from the old quarrying days. In honor of the area’s past, there are wooden signs along the trails that tell about the quarries’ history, providing a learning experience along with your ride. Keep your eyes open for the unique sculptures and friezes carved into the stone piles and walls along the trails. The Millstone Trails are made possible because of the generous recreational access offered by the Town of Barre and Rock of Ages quarry corporation.
