What is NATS?
For over 15 years, the Northshire Area Trail System (NATS) has been working to promote mountain biking and to build trails in the greater Manchester, Vermont area. NATS is a chapter of the Vermont Mountain Bike Association (VMBA) and has around 200 members. During that time, NATS has constructed approximately 11 miles of trail in the Towns of Dorset and Manchester on private and US Forest Service land through a combination of volunteer and professional labor funded by private donations. At the same time, NATS has partnered with the US Forest Service to open up approximately 12 miles of existing trails for mountain biking in the Towns of Peru, Landgrove, and Weston.
