What an incredible spot! Pittsfield Vermont may have one of the best mountain biking secrets on the east coast. In the hills above town there lies a network of trails and surprises just waiting to be discovered. We stopped at the country store to stock up on some last minute items before heading for the stone cabin in woods. From the village, we took RT-100 south and turned on to Tweed River Drive. After climbing almost 500 vertical feet we arrived at the upper parking area for the Green Mountain Trails. From here we set off to make the short trip up Round Yonder trail to the summit. You can also take the green trail which provides a simple and flowy route to the top of the mountain, as well as a more controlled descent for those bikers who are not quite ready to tackle Bubba’s Trail. At the peak you will be greeted by panoramic views of the green mountains, along with a most welcoming site; Shrek’s Hut. Inside, there is room for a few adults to sleep comfortably and lots of amenities. On the outside, there is room for whatever your mind can envision. Beautiful sunsets, wild animals, stories around the fire pit and visits from other riders are just a few of the things to expect during your time on South Hill. If your stay permits, seek out some of the local myths and legends that may or may not dot the hillside. Muddy’s Kitchen, Spartan Race artifacts and the infamous ravine trail are all worth a visit… if you can find them! We will definitely be making a trip back to this magical site.

Joe had his buddies carry all of these massive stones to create a magical staircase up one of the trails.These are some of the original rope climb obstacles from when Joe started the Spartan Races on the mountain. The owner, Joe, gave us some great tips on what trails to bike and explore.The bunkbeds inside were great for 4 people

Very rustic but comfortable accommodation. Requires some know how of the outdoors, etc. sleeping gear. Fantastic atmosphere, Superb views, epicenter of mountain biking. A few visitors during the day as the hut is on a hike/bike trail. Serene at night. Short hike from parking lot. Host is fantastic.

Awesome fall colors. So cool to wake up above the clouds. Unique spot. Totally recommend. Stayed with small children and loved it, but lucky it did not rain
