NEK Gravel Weekend-Wheeling around Willoughby

Lake Willoughby, North End parking
Address: 67 Songadeewin Ln, Barton, VT 05822, USA

Click here for Covid-19 tracing and ride registration (required).

This is a lovely ride on gravel roads, including both class 4 and a CCC road through Willoughby State Forest. It starts at the north end of Lake Willoughby, traveling counterclockwise around the lake. The route heads to the west side of the lake and then by Wheeler Mountain on a Class 4 road, goes out to Route 5 briefly, and then the CCC road through the state forest to Route 5A. After a steep climb up to Newark Pond, the route climbs more on a Class 4 road up and down to Long Pond and back out to Lake Willoughby. Swimming at the lake afterwards.

For Friday and/or Saturday night, cyclists can stay at Tom and Pat's house in Lyndonville, just outside of East Burke. Vaccinated folks can lobby early for a spot inside the house but there is plenty of camping in the yard.
