Frog Hollow Bikes supports local organizations to help develop and provide access to trails in the Addison County area.
Vermont Mountain Bike Association (VMBA)
Through a family of 28 unified chapters, the association carries out its mission, which is to ensure the sustainable future of mountain biking in Vermont and to thoughtfully promote the best riding in the Northeast by serving as the central hub for advocacy, education and event support. VMBA is a 501c3 nonprofit organization.
Addison County Bike Club (ACBC)
Formerly the Middlebury Bike Club, a group of motivated community members and local riders have joined forces to revive Mountain biking awareness in not just Middlebury but all of Addison County. As a chapter of VMBA (Vermont Mountain Bike Association) “ACBC” will work harmoniously with local land owners and state owned forests to build and maintain trails while preserving the integrity of the forest and its natural growth.
Trail Around Middlebury (TAM) & Middlebury Area Land Trust (MALT)
The “TAM” as it is known locally, is a major project of the Middlebury Area Land Trust. The TAM, a footpath over 18 miles long, encircles the village of Middlebury and links several hundred acres of town land, conserved properties, schools, and other local landmarks. The TAM loop is complete with the construction of 2 bridges that span Otter Creek, made possible by generous support from the Arnold family and Vermont Department of Forests, Parks and Recreation.
The Middlebury Area Land Trust (MALT) addresses its mission in an organized, focused way. In 2018 we will revisit our strategic plan and through this exercise, adapt and grow the ways we serve our community. Grants from the Land Trust Alliance and the Vermont Community Foundation supported the extensive work on the plan and provided for collection of a broad range of community input.
For outdoor enthusiasts of all levels and for all seasons, Vermont’s Moosalamoo National Recreation Area of almost 16,000 acres, is a treasure in the heart of the Green Mountain National Forest. More than 70 miles of well-maintained trails — from rugged cliffs to gentle slopes — provide many opportunities for hiking, biking, cross/back-country skiing, snowshoeing, wildlife and bird watching, and more. Take in the spectacular scenery with expansive mountain vistas, hardwood and softwood forests, waterfalls, and secluded lakes and streams. Enjoy wilderness solitude or retrace the footsteps of Robert Frost, whose last summer home on the northern edge of the area can be visited, along with the one-mile Robert Frost Interpretive Trail.
