The Silver Lake trail system is in the Moosalamoo National Recreation Area, within the Green Mountain National Forest. The trails are varied and include woods trails, old carriage roads, and gravel roads. This is a fairly rugged area: some trails are rocky and there can be significant elevation gain. The Silver Lake trails connect to the Goshen Dam area trails, to the east.

  • You can park here (Silver Lake parking on the map below) and ride east along an old dirt road that brings you to Silver Lake, or here (Silver Lake Rd. parking) and ride north to the lake. From there you connect to more trails including a trail along Silver Lake and the Sucker Brook trail.

  • There are remote campsites on the east side of Silver Lake. Hikers and mountain bikers camp there and must carry in all their supplies. There is also a remote horse campsite at the northeast corner of Silver Lake, which is scheduled to reopen in the summer of 2023, thanks to the hard work and generous support of some Vermont Horse Council members and others.

  • Information is available here, and an overall trail map here. Be sure to also download the back side of the map which has important information on where horses are allowed.

  • We have put together a map of trails that VHC members like to ride, which you can access here. You might need a free AllTrails account to access it. It is also printed below.

  • You can watch a lovely video about the area here.
