Vermont's Gateway To Backcountry Skiing And Riding

Section 2: Harriman Dam to Route 9

*Note to Skiers:
The stream crossing just north of Medburyville South has a beaver dam that may make crossing tricky.  If you chose not to cross, you can walk on Woods Road to where the trail rejoins the Woods Road. 

There will be logging activity on the unplowed road between “the end of plowing” at Medburyville South and the picnic grounds south of there.  Do not obstruct these activities when parking. The “end of plowing” may not be obvious, look for CTA blazes and a CTA Caution Sign.  The normally unplowed road may not be skiable and may be tricky walking in ski boots if the skidder ruts have frozen.

Catamount_Trail_Section_2_MapSnapshot: 
This section offers a very beautiful and almost entirely level ski along the shore of Harriman Reservoir and the Deerfield River.

Length:
10.1 miles

Difficulty:
This is an easy, nearly level ski, with a few short climbs that can be walked if needed.  The first mile is shared with snowmobiles.  There are no intermediate access points for the first seven miles along this section, so allow plenty of time to ski the entire section.
