VAST Trail & TMA Information

DSCF5058.JPGFor decades, snow sports enthusiasts have been enjoying the trails and lakes of Vermont in the winter months by way of the snowmobile. The VAST Trail system is designed for snowmobiling, originated in the Northeast Kingdom of Vermont and has grown to extend well into Quebec, New Hampshire, New York, as well as parts of Connecticut. In the Northeast Kingdom of Vermont, you'll find that the VAST Trail extends through miles of untamed wilderness to lakes frozen and passable and is a means of travel from township to township.
