Who We Are

Slate Valley Trails, Inc. (SVT) is a volunteer community group founded in 2015.  We are a registered 501 (c)(3) non-profit organization and a chapter of the Vermont Mountain Biking Association (VMBA).  

Our mission is to build, maintain and promote foot and bicycling trails in the Slate Valley region of southwestern Vermont.

Our goals are to: 
1) Build community among local individuals, organizations and businesses.
2) Support the local economy by promoting the region as a place to visit, with improved access to trails.
3) Encourage the positive health benefits of being active outdoors.
