Need to Know

Roller Coaster, Screaming Demon, and the Harrington are downhill only. You can session the Harrington by looping back on Holy Roller and Rock and Roll. To session the near in downhills Roller Coaster and Screaming Demon you need to ride out to Websterville Road and start from the parking lot again.


Head out from the parking lot at Magic Wheel Bike Shop / Touring Center up the hill making a right on the access trail. Read the placards along the way describing the history of the quarries you are riding past. Follow the sign on the left at the entry to Roller Coaster. To get a nice view of a quarry and the valley ride up to Sunset Lookout via Hilltop Trail and then loop up and back down to Roller Coaster following the signs.

Roller Coaster finishes on a gravel access road which you cross to start Rock and Roll which is on the left of the doubletrack. Follow Rock and Roll to Holy Roller which is signed on the left. Holy Roller reconnects with Rock and Roll and brings you to a near 180 degree left turn up a doubletrack. Follow the doubletrack for a couple hundred feet or so staying to the right to Harrington Heights. You'll really enjoy the unique features on this trail. At the end you'll intersect with a section of Holy Roller you rode before.

Follow this to the left until you reach Rock and Roll. Make a right on Rock and Roll (or stay to the left and loop back to ride Harrington Ridge this time!!). Follow the doubletrack up to the sign on the left pointing off to Websterville Road. Ride the road back up to the parking lot and where you'll loop in again. This time take Rock and Roll to the intersection with Screaming Demon and enjoying the features on that trail.

At the gravel road at the bottom of the trail (same exit as Roller Coaster you rode earlier) make a right and follow it to Websterville Road and ride back to the parking lot.

Hmmmm... Pretty slick and treacherous after the rain yesterday. We left for Perry Hills and had a much better ride there.

Did this ride 8/11/18. Super fun, conditions were perfect. Maybe a bit short, so I've been told to try and loop in the nearby Barre Town Forest trails to make it more of a half day ride. Aug 12, 2018
