Construction is underway on one of the latest additions to St. Johnsbury’s growing biking infrastructure

Construction is underway on one of the latest additions to St. Johnsbury’s growing biking infrastructure. Work began last week on a new trail in the St. Johnsbury Town Forest. The effort, launched by the Caledonia Trail Collaborative, will create a new, machine-built flow trail that will be about 1.7 miles long and have some thrilling features on the downhill segment, including rolling terrain, banked turns and even some spots to get airborne, if riders choose. “I would say the trail will be a solid intermediate trail,” said Joe Fox, vice-president of CTC who helped design and lay out the trail. “You will have the opportunity to get airborne – it’s fun.” The 97-acre town forest is already home to nearly 3 miles of walking trails but has never before allowed bike riding. When the new trail is complete it will be the first introduction of biking and mixed-use. Fox said he’s hopeful the trail will even support adaptive bike riding.
